AAA Cards Challenge #61 Stencil

A new challenge - and a new prize too - starts today at AAA Cards. And we'd like to see some stencilling on your card.

I'm a bit of a late convert to stencilling, but am now totally addicted and love how it adds layers without the bulk.  And the new, and older, Visible Image stamps just beg for an inky background.

I created my background strip using two shades of orange to create a bit of an ombre effect. The misti got a good bashing with this card too as I wanted my stamped image and sentiment to be crisp and dark.

Don't you just love this stamp set, so trendy and modern and perfect for one of my growing up way too fast grandsons - you know the type, 11 years going on 16!

Stamps: Visible Image, Teenage Kicks
Inks: SU, delightful dijon, tangerine tango; Memento tuxedo black
Stencil: Bee Crafty Inkables

Right now it's your turn to get all inked up with some stencils and then pop over to AAA Cards and put your card into our gallery.

Thanks for looking today, hope you've enjoyed your visit.  And keep crafting!
