The challenge is Shaped Stencils
For this technique you will need a shaped die cut, low tack tape (or washy tape), a sponge and your regular card making supplies (cardstock, adhesive, ect).

Die cut any open shaped die cut you'd like to use on a spare piece of cardstock. I cut mine the same shape as my card so I could line it up easily.

Make a sandwich with your die cut mask on top, your stencil (A Colorful Life - Circle Mosaic) and your cardstock below. Once you have your cardstock bottom layer lined up use low tack tape to secure all the layers before sponging.

Sponge ink (or paint) through the masked area.
I splattered some thinned white acrylic paint onto mine after sponging.

Using my MISTI I stamped the Watercolor Giraffe in brown ink and the sentiment from Things I Want To Do in black ink. I finished my card by adding a few shadows to the giraffe with markers, rounding the corners and adding a border with a fine black pen.

Supplies used:
Inks: Ranger Distress (Dried Marigold, Vintage Photo, Ground Espresso, Archival Black)
MISTI stamp tool
low tack tape
white acrylic paint

Have a great day! Jeanne

Crazy Cat Border Bookmark

This is a birthday card for one of my daughters.  It encompasses two of her loves (besides her family of course!).  She loves cats, and loves to read.

I used three Technique Junkie Stamps - Crazy Cat Border -, one of the sayings in the Bookworms set - , and Random ABC background -

I created the background paper for both the first layer and the the book mark with Distress Oxide inks -  -  in the same manner as the Antique Glimmers technique.  I used Twinkling H2Os and randomly colored in some of the cats on the bookmark and the pocket frame.

Since adhesives show through under vellum, I created a frame from card stock stamped with the Crazy Cat border stamp.  I adhered the vellum with my ATG adhesive, and attached it to the base card with the same adhesive.

I tied ribbons through the tag hole to pull the book mark out.  My daughter will love all of this!

Have a wonderful day -- and get inky!
