CCEE2136 - swapping ideas

 Tomorrow (9/10) is Swap Ideas Day. For today’s challenge, find a card you have seen using a new technique to you, or a new color combination, or anything you’ve never done before and make a card. Be sure to credit the person whose idea you have used. 

I have started collecting stencils lately so I found a technique called shadow stenciling. I stenciled antique linen distressed oxide ink onto a black background, and then added white gel pen lines to one side so it would have a shadowed look. This stencil is from Stamplorations and the stamps are from Unity stamps. I used versafine black ink for the stamped images. 

Check out the ideas being swapped over on the CCEE stampers blog that can be found here:

I also entered this card for the Ways to use challenge on Splitcoaststampers to use a balloon,
I entered this in the Cardz 4 Galz challenge found here:
