TGIF #67 Stencil It!

It's color challenge time at TGIF!  This is a great color palette that was lots of fun to dabble in.  For my spin on the challenge I decided to sponge over a hand made stencil with Island Indigo ink which adds a nice soft backdrop for the Flourish Thinlet floral focal point.  
I created my handmade stencil by cutting a piece of Vellum Card Stock a little bigger than my card; then I put the largest shape from the Flourish Thinlets in the middle and ran it through my Big Shot.  After that I positioned the negative of the Vellum Card Stock over my Whisper White card base and  ran a Sponge Brayer inked up with Island Indigo ink over top.  The new Sponge Brayers give such a light and airy look, which I love, and are fabulous for stenciling.  You know I have tons of Thinlets so I plan on doing more stenciling.  It's a tried and true technique that I like incorporating in my cards.
