Cheering You On, Stencil Girl
I had so much fun inking the background for this card. I used the Circle Tile Stencil from Stencil Girl and an ink blending tool. I used Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Carved Pumpkin. Once I got the background all inked I then splattered a little water on it. Since Distress Inks react with water you will see the fun splotches.
I then tore the background into 2 sections. when you tear towards yourself you will get this really nice jagged edge.
I thought off setting these pieces on black cardstock really made the colors POP! I added a sprinkle of sequins and a fun encouraging sentiment.
With changing jobs and a very hectic schedule I am not going to be able to periscope this week <insert sad face> but I hope to be back next soon with some scoping!

Hi Jenn ~ LOVE this stencil!! I have a couple with circles, but nothing that includes a grid-like pattern as well. I’ve also never heard of this particular brand and definitely want to check it out! I love stencils and I’m a self-described Distress Ink Junkie so this is perfect. It’s been awhile since I’ve done any tearing on my cards but this is an awesome reminder that something so simple can make such an impact. The black background is perfect!! Thanks so much for sharing!
PS: SOOOO glad I made it to one of your Loft Art Retreats (finally), especially since you’re moving. Good luck with the move and I look forward to what comes next.
Fun design, Jenn! Love the bright burst of hot pink & orange 🙂
