Stenciled Thank You Card


I am sharing one more stencil card today because the challenge at Simon Says Stamp this week is "Stencil It!" SSS is my favorite challenge to enter and one of these weeks I am going to be the lucky winner! I make this card with the stencil technique taught here by Jennifer McGuire.  I decided to try it with black and white ink on grey cardstock. I used a stencil from TCW and to fill in all the openings with first white pigment ink and then black, took a long long time. But I like how it turned out. I cut two "thanks" with a die from Lil' Inker and offset the white on the black. I layered the whole piece onto a white cardbase for a fun thank you card.

Besides the challenge at Simon Says Stamp, I am also entering this card into the anything goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create (another favorite of mine.)
