Reverse Stencil

I often watch Gina K videos on YouTube while I walk on the treadmill in the morning. That is where I learned this technique - this time from Gina's daughter, Rina. It's pretty cool. First, you cover a piece of cardstock with ink. I used brushes and Gina K inks. I think the cardstock I used for this one is even Gina K. After covering the cardstock, place a stencil over the inked piece and then use black ink. This is what you get. I'll have another card done with this technique on tomorrow's blog post. I matted with black. The sentiment (also from Gina K) is matted with black and mounted on foam squares. The butterfly is die-cut. I think it's from Memory Box. I cut a piece of vellum to place underneath it and glued it to the sentiment panel. 
This card was done with the same stencil, but just the typical way. I stamped the sentiment on vellum and embossed. I folded the edges of the vellum around the panel before matting and then I added thin black strips of cardstock to the top and bottom edges.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I like both of the stenciled cards but the one with black stenciling really is striking.

These both turned out just beautiful! I watched Rina's video, too, the other day, and I've been meaning to give this technique a try. Thanks for the reminder.

I might have to try the inky idea with the black. I don't do much with my stencils and need to work at it a little more. Both your cards are beautiful, Lynette!
