Sweet Silhouettes

Happy Saturday!
Great time to play with some new toys.

I just picked up this stencil by The Crafter's Workshop called Mini Sweet Peas.
I wanted to do a monoprint using Brushos so I laid down my stencil over a piece of scrap paper, sprinkled on some Brushos pigment powder over the back, sprayed with water then pressed onto my paper.  I quickly lifted up the stencil so the ink wouldn't run underneath it to create a lovely monoprint.  It is a great way to get a different look from the stencils you already own.
After the piece had dried, I placed it in my Misti and stamped the wildflowers and the sentiment.
Pretty straightforward and simple.



Hope you have a great weekend.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
