Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Stencil twofer

Hello everyone! I'm back with two more cards for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I decided to revisit a technique that I used on this card back in March. This time, I decided to use one of my new ARTplorations stencils.

For my first card, I used the Tim Holtz spritzer tool and some Tombow markers to create a vibrant background. After carefully lifting off my stencil, I sprayed the stencil lightly with water and placed it onto a second cardstock panel for a mono print.

I will add the list of materials and links to other challenges tomorrow ...

     Background text 2nd card - Birds of a feather (Catherine Pooler, SOA Naturally inspired)

Ink: Versafine black
Cardstock: Neenah solar white 80 lb, black cardstock from my stash
