Make It Monday #253 - Reverse Stenciling

Hello friends.  Betsy is heading up the challenge this week over at Make It Monday, and made the most gorgeous card using a technique called Reverse Stenciling.  I would have CASE'd her card completely if I had had all the supplies...it is that BEAUTIFUL!!  You can check it out HERE.  Since I didn't have the stencil she used (yet!), I used one of the ones from the Modern Background stencil pack and came up with this:


I loved how Betsy angled her stencil and just had to copy that!  I do not have a brayer, so I just used my Raspberry Fizz and Orange Zest ink cubes directly to the stencil, misted, and then pressed into my cardstock...love how it came out!!  My die cut (Big Hugs) was cut out 4 times and the top one was sponged with Raspberry Fizz and Orange Zest inks.  The sentiment is also from the Big Hugs stamp set.  I added a butterfly from the Color Pop: Butterfly kit and sparkled it up a bit with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.  You can see it better in this close up:


This was definitely a fun technique and one I will be doing again!  Head on over to Nichole's blog and check out Betsy's video and fabulous card and then play along!  You can find all the info right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)

Beautiful angling, colors, ombred die cut, and gorgeous card! My order hasn't arrived yet either, but making do with other gorgeous stencils isn't too hard!

I would have liked it much better if I had just used the ink pads instead of the brayer. Maybe I will give that a shot yet.

What a great card. I love how the stenciling looks as a background. With the sentiments on top with the embellishments. Really lovely!

Great job, love your shading and positioning - good idea.

Wonderful - like how "Hugs" blends right in with the card. The black accents on the butterfly really pull the sentiments together.
