ARTplorations Sanna Lippert Designs Fairy Tale Forest Stencil.
Clear Stickers Free Spirit 

I used a Stencil Monoprint Technique on Strathmore Mixed Media paper.
I placed the ARTplorations Sanna Lippert Designs Fairy Tale Forest Stencil
over the MM paper.

Next I  sprinkled Bisters crystal inks over the stencil and spritzed with water
using Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer to reconstitute the crystals.  Then carefully 
flipped the stencil onto another piece of MM paper and used a paper towel to press the
inks into the MM paper.  That gives you a cool monoprint image.
You can see then how the white areas are the Fairy Tale Forest Stencil image.

You can get another 1 or 2 lighter images on more paper for softer backgrounds.
I got 2 more pulls for future projects:-)  I used Yellow, Green, Blue and Natural 
Bisters crystals.

When 1st image was dry I die cut with 
Added natural twine.  Popped up with craft foam STAMPlorations
 Clear Stickers Free Spirit sentiment.
Attached layers to SU Crumbcake Cardstock and Done!

I loved the earth tones and the stenciled monoprint image.
There are so many creative ways to use stencils
and STAMPlorations ARTplorations has a huge selection to choose from:-)

You have until the end of the month to hop along with us at 
STAMPloration Stencil  Anything Goes Challenge!

Love and Hugs...
