For the online stencil course. This lesson was on using a stencil as a template within which you stamp images or sentiments.
I started with my winter wonderland stencil, taped it over my white cs, and, with it in place, stamped various small snowflakes and background dots in the stencil openings with Weathered Wood distress ink. I then sponged over the stencil with light blue. To add some sparkle, I randomly sprinkled some clear silver embossing powder and heated it from underneath so it would not blow off the cs.
I stamped the sentiment in Weathered Wood and using the same ep, attached it with ribbon, bordered it with silver/blue cs. I meant to stop there but it looked very bare and kind of boring so I punched and diecut some birds out of the silver/blue cs. They looked very flat so I smeared them with Versamark and added the clear silver ep to them to give them sparkle and popped them up in various spots and gave them silver gemstones for eyes.

Great job with this technique. Love the small snowflakes stamped in gray in your stencil with the blue sponged over top - so pretty. Great idea to add some silver ep randomly over the card to give it some sparkle. The birds are so pretty with the embossing - looks awesome on the gray card stock!

Wow Susan! You took that class to new heights! I love how you used several stamps within the stencil and added embossing powder for texture! Fabulous job with the techniques they taught.
