My Creative Time: Try Me Tuesday

Today is Try Me Tuesday over on the My Creative Time Blog. We are trying a technique where we create our own stencils with MCT dies. 

So here is what I came up with.

To create my stencil: I used MCT: Stitched Rectangles and More to cut out a small rectangle in heavy white card stock. I then cut out three leaves from MCT: A Thankful Heart Stamp set in the rectangle. I then layered my stencil on another white card stock rectangle and taped it to my cutting mat. Now it was ready to ink.

For my leaves: I used a sponge to color them with Potter's Clay, Dandelion, Tango, and Rhubarb Stalk Memento inks. Then I stamped on the leaves with MCT: Build a Script  in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I didn't ink the whole stamp up so that way each leaf would look unique to the others.

I stamped the sentiment from MCT: Something to Be Thankful For stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I love this sentiment to the moon and back! It is oh so true! I colored the little heart in with a Dark Red Copic marker.

I matted it with green Recollection's card stock and adhered it to my card base.

I finished it by adding gold sequins.

Well that's my card! I hope I have inspired you to create your own stencils with My Creative Time dies. I had so much fun trying this technique out! I hope you will too!
