Inking in OCC's Stenciled

I am absolutely addicted to the Online Card Classes. This is my eighth class.  If you'd like to see cards from previous classes, just click on my fun classes page. It has the class logo and links to my posts for those classes.

The current class is all about stencils.  The first day is about inking and masking.  I decided to emulate two of the inking cards. Once again I am only making the fronts, so I can keep them with my notes for later reference.

The Bee card follows Debby Hughes example and uses sponging over a mylar stencil with an embossed vellum sentiment tag. I used two distress inks and decide to cover most of the card because I made it tiny to fit my sentiment. Frankly, I liked the color behind the vellum, I am lover of yellows. Sentiment by Simon Says Stamp, Stencil by The Crafters Workshop, punch by Marvy. Sequins by Doodlebug.

My second card follows Julie Ebersole's card and uses Hero Arts Stamps, Simon Says Stamp die, Spellbinders metal impressibility used as a stencil, Mists by Tattered Angels, and sequins bits by Martha Stewart.  I sprayed 3 mists on to the cardstock with the metal stencil taped down. Metal stencils will not be forgiving to your sponges so paste or sprays probably work best with them. 
Thanks for stopping by.
