Combining challenges today with a monoprint using a stencil for the TLC and a cupcake theme for the CAS. I wanted to try out my new color and thought of my cupcake blueprint as a way to meet the challenge. I stamped onto a used sheet of grid paper and tore around the edges. I inked up my stencil with a marker on the solid parts of the stencil. I spritzed liberally and then pressed that down onto my white paper. I used an old baby wipe to press down and then to mop up any extra wet areas once I removed the stencil (LeeAnne's tutorial is great!). Then I threw together my layout and accented with a screw brad to keep it masculine.

Trust you to be able to turn even a swirly cupcake into a great masculine looking card, Gail! Well, I guess the blueprint concept helps...And, thanks for mentioning markers; I must try that because it sounds like a good way to get colour just where I want it on a stencil!
