Lots of Leaves- Stencil Layering

Have you ever stenciled over a stencil??
It's fun and what a unique look it can give.  
That's what I did to create the background for my card today.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock.  I placed the Lots of Leaves stencil from ACLD over my cardstock and using a blending brush, I applied some Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink.  
  • When I was happy with the inking, I left the stencil in place and put the Simple Grid stencil right over top of it. Be sure to secure well.  
  • Using some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink, I inked right over the leaves, giving them some wonderful pattern.
  • I removed the stencil, splattered with some water to lift the ink in places, then set aside.
  • When dry, I placed the panel into my Misti to stamp the sentiment from Pinkfresh Studios.
  • I cut a strip of black cardstock and stamped the strip with Versamark ink, then white heat embossed it.
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of green cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.  
  • I pop dotted the black sentiment strip under the large sentiment.

Here are the stencils I used:

A fabulous effect with the stencilled leaves and then the grid in a complementarty colour stencilled over the leaves to give a wonderful pattern Karen, and the black sentiment and the white embossed on black sentiment strip finish it perfectly. x
