Jumping for Joy

Good Morning.
Simple, happy card today using a technique I showed a few weeks ago that I called 
Basically, it is stenciling over a stencil.

I began by masking my card front using Painter's Tape then using some Peeled Paint Distress ink and stenciled the TCW Chicken Wire as the bkg.  I then took some drywall tape and stenciled over that using Peacock Feather.
Using my Misti, I stamped this wonderful image then this fun sentiment.
I clear heat embossed both to help make the black pop.
Lastly, I splattered some diluted Distress ink to look like rain and rubbed more ink along the card edges.


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

What a fabulous silhouette image Karen and love that stencilled background. I must get some of the dry wall tape which makes a great background pattern, and I love the blue tones which you do so well, definitely your signature colour. x
