Die cut the deer from scrap paper to use the negative under the stencil.
Next I put the mask down over the deer and penciled in some lines to follow when stenciling, the walls and floor. You'll notice on my card that there are three different sections of stripes, each at a different angle. Kinda like the inspiration photo.
Put down my stencil over the masked deer and inked the floor area with a sponge dauber.
BTW, each time I pulled up the stencil I spritzed it and stamped it off in my notebook for future use. I didn't want to risk smearing red ink where it wasn't wanted on the panel. Notice that one red "blob" on the floor section of my finished panel? Then notice where I placed my sentiment on the final card ;)
