JFF June 2019 Challenge - Use a stencil!

Hello Everyone! It is design team member April here hosting this month's challenge. I love working with stencils because there are so many ways to use them on a project. For example you can sponge through them, use stencil pastes, stamp through them, use them with the gelli plates and so much more! I would love to see what you do with them.

I must say when I use this '57 Chevy stamp I always think of my dad. I remember the long trips we took each summer in his '56 Chevy to go visit my grandparents. We also traveled Route 66 for awhile on the way!

I made a retro background by rotating a stencil. The picture below shows the original look of the stencil.

First I sponged on Wild Honey Distress ink.

Then I turned the stencil a one quarter turn and sponged using Aged Mahogany Distress ink.

This is such a fun way to use a stencil. You never know what look you will get. I then used the Spellbinders Labels 4 die to cut out a shape from this piece.

I stamped the Open Highway background stamp and cut and colored the Route 66 sign and pop dotted it to the card.


I also stamped the City Skyline stamp behind the shape.
I hope that you will join in this challenge and let us see all the creative ways you use a stencil!

Have a wonderful day!
