Easy Card Using A Die As A Stencil

Hi Everybody,

I was looking through all my dies and I ran across a set that I have never used.  I remembered that I had bought them because I saw someone do some cool things with them but of course now I can't remember what it was.  

The set is Tim Holtz Mixed Media #2.  I used the die that looks like a flourish like a stencil and colored it in with Zig Markers.  It was so much fun too!  Then I realized I already have these in real stencils LOL!!!  It will be fun to use these dies for the inlaid die technique as well.  

So first I cut out the die and used some semi-heavy card stock since I am using it as a stencil.  I taped this 'stencil' over a piece of watercolor paper.  I chose 2 colors of Zig Markers that I liked and colored in the stencil.   

I stamped a sentiment from WPlus9 called Southern Sentiments with my Versafine Onyx Black cube and embossed with clear powder.  I LOVE this cube by the way because I used to always drop the regular sized pad and I can handle this cube without getting it all over the place.

For the card stock, I used Gina K Designs Tomato Soup and Passionate Pink.  I cut them so that you would see the pink on two sides and the orange on the other two sides.  I just wanted to do something different. 

I added a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and brushed over the flourish with a clear Wink of Stella brush glitter pen to finish it off.  You can flick water droplets on it if you would like to as well.

If you liked this card today, it was easy.  I hope I inspired you to try this.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
