I spritzed it with water using THIS to add some texture. I die-cut a small circle from THIS masking paper and used the negative piece as a stencil. I inked it up with THIS white pigment ink to create a moon. I also...

Stencil Stamping Good Luck Card

Hello, crafty friends. Today’s card uses new goodies from Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember release… I started by inking up THIS stencil with a few Distress Oxide Ink colors. I wasn’t loving the background I created through the stencil so I changed gears and sprayed the stencil with water. It reacted with the ink left on the stencil and I flipped it over and “stamped” it on another piece of card stock. After it was...
