Valentines Card with Stencils and a Cute Stamp

Hello and welcome! 

It's Saturday again and it's time for my weekly Allsorts challenge card share. This week Brenda is hosting and our theme is Anything goes with an option to use a stencil. Stencils have become one of my favorite tools over the last couple of years, they are so quick and easy to use to make your own backgrounds and I really enjoyed this challenge. We have two wonderful prizes this week, a cute Woodware stamp set and a stencil by Aall and Create. Hope you will join us for your chance to win!

And here is what I made using 2 stencils and a cute mouse from Penny Black's set Loads of Love.

Using Penny Black's Hypnotic stencil I started inking with Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink, then added a bit of Picked Raspberry ink. I used my new craft blending brushes for blending the ink.

On the bottom portion I used Altenew's stencil Classy Stripes and once again Speckled Egg ink. As mentioned, the cute image from the Penny Black set Loads of Love, stamped on a separate piece of Bristol Vellum paper and colored using Zig Clean Color markers, then fussy cut using my Cutterbee scissors. I didn't bother cutting around the tail and simply cut it off instead, then re-stamped the image on the card front. The fussy cut image was adhered over the other stamped image using foam tape. 

Before adhering the image, I used a circle mask and inked around the edges with Picked Raspberry ink. Then I added some ink splatter with a white Posca pen and diluted Wilted Violet ink. The sentiment is an oldie from a Stampin Up set, but I'm not sure which one as it's been separated from the rest of the set. 

Stickles glitter glue (Stardust) was applied to the heart and cupcake frosting.
