I am very eclectic in buying my craft supplies. I used two stencils from two different companies the plaid is from Stamplorations and the snowflake is from Gina K. The image I used and sentiment is from Unity. I also like to make my Christmas cards during the entire year, so I decided to make this one a Christmas/winter card. The inks I used for my stenciling are distress oxide inks from Tim Holtz. The image and sentiment are stamped using versafine black ink. I colored the image with Copic markers.
I had a grandmother who quilted and stenciled back in the 1950s and 1960s. Stencils were a little different then, and she used fabric instead of paper and paints instead of inks. I have been so fascinated using these new designs and methods as part of my paper crafting.
I was excited to see the challenge today for Just Us Girls to make use of more than one stencil. This particular pairing I had not tried before, But I like how it turned out. Hope you do too. You can find the details of the challenge here:
