Stencils seem to have come around again and are the current trend in the paper crafting world. Lately I have been creating my own backgrounds using stencils, sponging, the retiform technique, brayering and getting ink everywhere in the process and usually it is on my almost finished project (ARRRRR). That being said I’ve used stencils today on my card. You can find today’s OWH Sunday sketch here.
For this card I used the brick wall stencil with kraft ink on whip cream cardstock — all from My Favorite Things. I used some of the oldest interactive stamps I have from Stamps by Judith for the image and the sentiment is from Just Rite Stamps called Hugs and Kisses. The flowers were stamped with Razzle Berry ink and Sour Apple from My Favorite Things. I used a Copic marker to add water to the jar.
Online Card Classes is offering a class on Creative Ways to use Stencils on Cards starting Friday January 24, 2014 which I have registered for and am looking forward to. There is a fee to take the class. It is interactive, and you have access to it forever to refer back to the videos and pdf files. I participated in the Summer Card Class and learned so much (some of which I am still trying). Just a suggestion in case you are interested.
Enjoy what is left of the weekend and thanks for stopping by.

This is beautiful, Anne! I love how you have the flowers coming out of the jar!
Beautiful card Anne. Love the stenciled background and the flowers coming up out of the jar. You’ve tied everything together beautifully. Thanks for playing!
Very pretty card – the stenciled background is striking and I really like the flowers breaking the boundary of the square.
Sweet card…love the softness!
Very pretty card1 Love how you stenciled your own background.
What a great idea for a background! I am going to have to try that. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
So pretty– love how you created your own background– love it!
Anne, this is a very pretty card. I love the stencil work and the sponging. Great idea the way you have the flowers coming out of the vase/square all at the same time.
