Stencils 3...and a Sketch!

Still working on homework from Day 1 of the "Stenciled" class offered by Online Card Classes.  I was inspired by Laura Bassen's technique of inking a background stencil with Versamark ink and then heat embossing.  I used a dotted stencil from Heidi Swapp and clear embossing powder.  

This card also features Rita Wright's sketch of the week at Freshly Made Sketches.


Here's my card.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye "Love Me"collection and the sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame-It set.


I decorated hearts cut with Sizzix Hearts, Primitive #3 die with stamped images from Fresh Cut Florals by WPlus9.


If you don't own a polka dot background stamp, this is a great, economical option since stencils are typically cheaper!
