Circle Stencil Masking..
Over the Christmas break I was taking down all of the cards I had been sent in 2016 and I came across a card from Cheiron that I really liked.
It was a masked off circle that has been stenciled into to, with a thank you popped up in black.
I thought I would CASE it, as I have been enjoying playing around with masking lately.
First thing I did was die-cut my circle mask out of a scrap of paper (I keep the inserts that come with stamp sets as they are pretty heavy duty and useful).
Then I positioned it over my piece of card and taped the stencil in place and went to work with x3 colours of distress ink.
I did this for all four cards, I changed the position of the circle and the colours for each card.
Then I die-cut the panels out using a stitched rectangle die and added the sentiments.
Super easy and you get four pretty cards, very quickly.
All my stamps are by Simon Says Stamp and are from x3 different stamp sets.
I can't decide if I should keep them and use them myself or give them to someone as a set.
