Virginia's View Challenge #2--STENCILS

Virginia has done it again--chose a fun, trendy theme for her second challenge--STENCILS!

I'm entering these just under the wire. The first is a simple stenciled sunburst
from My Favorite Things, paired with the fun sentiment from Mama Elephant for
Studio Calico. And although you can't see it in the photo, I added a bit of glimmer
on the rays with a Wink of Stella pen.

My second card uses the stencil stamping with water technique.

I shared a pictorial on how to stamp a stencil with water here, and the awesome
Laura Bassen shared a video here. After the piece was dry, I gold embossed
the Winnie and Walter sentiment, and added a few gold stars.
You have a few more days to enter Virginia's challenge.
