Freshly Made Sketches #145

Hello, and thanks for visiting! I'm posting my second card of the day which is for Freshly Made Sketches. The sketch this week is by Narelle:

I thought I would try something new to me which is stencils. I've purchased a few over the last few months and guessed it was time to try them out. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and three shades of Memento Ink. I inked the first layer, then cut the smaller layer and inked it up to line up with the bottom. The flower and leaves are from Hero Arts also stamped with Memento black and colored with Copics. There must be an easier and cleaner way to do this 'cause my finger tips are stained! Need to practice. Here's my card:

Have a sunny day!
