I have been fascinated with stencils.   
So much that I have been collecting them for some time now.   
Using them.... well...... you know..  Many are in mint condition 

When I saw this challenge from STAMPlorations.  I decided it was time to get some ink on a stencil.

It is such a beautiful card.  I really love the variations in colors.  

For mine.... I went Valentines.   

I used the Hearts Tumbled stencil.
I choose to use distress ink since this card will be going to a children's hospital

It took me a couple of attempts to figure out how not to smug the image and get the color blend I was looking for.  

The Happy is die cut from black card stock.   
I masked off part of a Happy Valentines day sentiment to only stamp the last two words.  

I will have more to share so stop back in when you have a chance
