What a fun and easy Stenciled Christmas Card. I used my ARTplorations Weathered Wood and The Merry Tree Stencils :-) Finally a Christmas card! I love both these stencils, but have never paired up before. Worked Great! I used the Stenciled Monoprint by Lee-Anne technique for the woodgrain background using TH Distress Inks. I used the normal stenciling techinique for the tree using 2 different Distress Inks. My sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers "Mixed Christmas Sentiments" set. I used my MISTI to get good coverage on the sentiment. The Arches 140# cold press is quite textured so need to restamp images. I stamped my sentiment 4 times to get it perfect...that is not because of the stamp. They are excellent quality. Had fun decorating my tree with sparkly HLS enamel dots.
My card is for several challenges........
