Styling with Stencils

I'm entering Moxie Fab World's Styling with Stencils Challenge
using the stencil stamping with water technique.


I love how water "bleaches" distress and dye inks and it's always a thrill
when you lift up the stencil because you never know what you're going to see,
and no two pieces ever turn out the same.


And you don't get to see the finished result until everything is completely dry.
I also added more color along the edges and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for stopping by!
