Thinking of you cards

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with 2 very different cards using the same products.

I started with a Donna Downey Stencil.  As I only wanted to use the bottom half, I placed the stencil on white cardstock and masked off the top.

Using assorted colors of Dylusions Ink Sprays, I spritzed the stencil.  Overlapping the colors provides a wonderful color scheme.  This is the result.  Since excess sprays remain on the stencil, I flipped it onto another sheet of cardstock, rubbing it onto the cardstock.  A negative image is the result (sorry I forgot to take a picture).
I matted each panel with Bazzill Cardstock, then wrapped coordinating May Arts ribbon around each before adding to another layer of Bazzill Cardstock.   Foam adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L provided dimension.
Using Spellbinders dies, I die cut 3 layers for the front of the reverse stenciled card.  I've used Stamping Bella's Winnie Peaking Out of the Window, stamping the portion I wanted on the white oval using Memento Tuxedo Black InkCopic Markers were then used to color the image.  I just wanted to cover the reversed words.  Stamping Bella's Winnie Peaking Out of the Window also contains the sentiment used on both cards.

Next time you are working with stencils remember to flip them to get a secondary effect.  Looking at this second generation card, you would never know the words behind the image were reversed would you?

Thank you for visiting
