{Spotlight Project} Vicki Shows Enclosed Stenciling

Today I am showing another basic: how to have enclosed stenciling on your card. Here is the finished look:

To achieve this partial stenciling is really easy.

Tape down a self made template over your card panel and/or base. While I used a circle, this could be any shape!

Tape down the stencil [I used ARTploratioins Oh My Stars] over the template.

Sponge on the first color.

Partially sponge on the secnd color for added depth [not necessary].

Finish off with adding on your embellishments and image. I used the newly released STAMPlorations Bee's Knees Baby Bump.

This technique has such huge potential. Just let your imagination go wild ;)

See you in a couple of weeks~
