For our stencil stamping challenge, I wanted to try using sentiments for the stamping inside the stencil because that was a technique we learned in the OCC Stretch your stamps. First I made balloon stencils by using the dies and die cutting some plastic from a stamp set. Then I stamped the sentiments in the balloons. With a blender tool I then added more color to each balloon over the sentiments. I masked also, so that the 2 smaller balloons would be in front of the larger one. In the photo the pink ink looks more splotchy than it looks IRL. Stamped the sentiment, added strings with a micro pen and done. Linking to TLC495 (stencil stamping) and CAS286 (stencils). Also,

EEEEEP!!! I am totally loving this card!!! The sequins are perfectly placed, and those word-print balloons add so much fun to card. Great use of the color inspiration as well. Thanks so much for playing along at OLS!
