I've had my stencils for a while and hadn't been using them to their full potential. In all honesty, I'm probably still not using them to their full potential. I signed up a long time ago for the Stenciled class on Online Card Classes and then sort of stepped away from creating. Recently, I saw some stenciled backgrounds and said I could do that. So I did!
This was the first one I made, I used distress inks in a rainbow of colors. I really love how it turned out, I was actually surprised.
The second one I did on watercolor cardstock with distress inks again. After I was done stenciling I misted it with water to soften the colors a little and then dried it with my heat tool.
So there you have it, my first two attempts at stenciling backgrounds, more to follow!
