Heidi is our hostess this week and she would like us to use stencils on our projects, plus use a SU set that is going to be retiring soon. If you don't use SU that's ok too, just pull out a stamp you haven't used in a while!
The stencil part threw me for a bit. I went hunting through my craft stash to see if I had any and I found one with dots that I had won in a giveaway last year. I looked through Pinterest, watched some videos on YouTube and just tried to get an idea of how to use the stencil.
Since I didn't have any of the mediums that a lot of people used I just grabbed some sponges, taped down the stencil over my paper and started inking away. I originally did it on watercolor paper but I just didn't like the way it came out so I started over on Whisper White. I used Daffodil Delight and Old Olive for the circles stenciled in the background.
The retired set I used is Friendship Preserves. I really like this set and am sad to see it retiring but I use retired sets all the time so it will still get some love!
I seemed to be sharing brain waves with a fellow DT member, Lynda, this week. Make sure you check out her card, as well as the other DT members at The Friday Mashup!
