a2z Scrapbooking April Challenge: Stencil It!

There's a new Challenge over at the a2z scrapbooking blog!
Join us this month for a Stencil theme

I decided to try coloring my embossing paste, with ink pads because
I don't keep many re-inkers around and it worked!
I just smushed my ink pad onto my craft sheet and mixed up
a little embossing paste on top until it died the paste.

Here's the craftermath

There was some green in there at one point but it got lost in translation.
Before I made this mess, I lined up and placed my stencil where I wanted
it on my card base, taping down with micro-pore tape so it wont move.
I also masked off the top of my card for the sentiment with that same tape.

I smeared the embossing paste around, I was originally trying for specific colors
on specific parts of the stencil, but then a few things got mixed up and it started looking
like Sherbert so I just kept going ha-ha.. Now I want ice cream...

Once that dried I added a small strip of washi tape, and stamped my Sentiment
and there you have it!
