I recently bought 3 more Tim Holtz stencils, Doily, Bricked and Argyle.
I thought it would be fun to have a play with them and see what I got.
I ended up with 3 really different cards.
The main card uses the Bricked stencil. I stenciled it using Hickory Smoke distress ink onto a piece of Tim Holtz woodgrain watercolour paper. I thought a bit of extra texture would be nice.
I added an already coloured Avery Elle Alligator from their Band Camp set. The sentiment and the musical notes are also from the set.
I love this card.
The next card utilises some Christmas Simon Says Stamp stamps and dies. I made them work a bit harder and become a birthday card.
I stenciled the jumper using the Argyle stencil. I love it!! Perfect male birthday card.
I love the Doily stencil, it is so intricate. I stenciled it with Hickory Smoke distress ink and then added the Unity Stamp Co sentiment. The women are by Stamping Bella.
I like the colour tones of this card and the sentiment is a hoot.
I love stencils, you can do so much with them, create a scene, highlight an image or add detail. They are one of my fave parts of my stash.
