May Technique Blog Hop: Stencil It!

Come along this month's technique blog hop to learn all about stencils!  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Michelle's blog.  From here, you'll go to Tamara's blog next.)
At first glance, you might be wondering where my stencil is on my card using the new A Million Little Things stamp set.
I made my own stencil to sponge the flowers.  I started by stamping the flower stamp twice on cardstock squares.  On one, I cut out only the center of the flowers with my craft knife.  On the other, I carefully cut out all of the insides of the flowers.  (I decided the stem would be too hard since it's so thin.)
 Here is the first step of the sponged flowers.
On the card, you can see how I used black to sponge the flower centers and my TriBlend Light Green marker to color the stem and flowers.  (I also wanted a longer stem, so I masked and stamped it twice on the main panel.)
While it takes time to make your stencil, it is reusable for a long time and will help you color quickly.  Please leave a comment before hopping over to Tamara's blog for the next stencil project!
