LeighAnn,

This isn't quite an entire card front, so don't be afraid to let me know if it doesn't qualify for your challenge.

Here is my finished card.

This is a different look than some of the other backgrounds because my stencil is very open ... I had fun looking through stamps and stencils.  This is a technique I'd like to try again.  Thanks for the challenge!

(I struggled with the layout of this card!  I moved the pieces around and around ... I debated cutting the focal piece down smaller but I was afraid I'd mess it up and I kind of like the wonky stitching around it ... what to do, what to do?  )  Does it need something in the empty corners?

Ok, I don't like failure, so I made another card and another.
I did the waves again with a different stencil.
And  I did a huge word stamp with hearts stencil for a valentine card.

Yankee, those are terrific cards.  Your first card was not a failure.    You just can't see the dandelions very well.  Since you aren't happy with it, why not try stamping the dandelion in a nice dark black so it stands out?  Emboss it if you have to.  The lighter gray dandelions can be shadows.  I suspect that you'll like it that way.

Great job, Yankee and Iring!

I think they turned out wonderful! Thank you all for participating. I really enjoyed this technique and i feel like it gives you ways to use your stencils with stamps.

Yes, I need to look at my stencils for using ink, not just pastes and paints!
I totally forgot about ink.

I managed to make 3 different backgrounds using the same stamp and stencil combo but different colors are different parts of the stencil, but I only managed to finish one card.
Wedding Card

The first one on the left uses grey ink to stamp the background and I used all of the stencil and two different colors of pink Distress Ink.  The middle one I stamped the background with red and used all of the stencil inking with Hickory Smoke.  The one on the right is stamped on pink paper with brown ink.  I only used parts of the stencil and inked with Distress Ink.

Sarah, thank you for posting the three different backgrounds.  It helps to see different options.  Now I'm thinking of kraft paper with some neutral colors for a masculine card.  You chose my favorite one for your beautiful wedding card.

I loved all of the entries! Everyone made some fantastic backgrounds with their stamps and stencils. I'm late to posting the winner, we've had some busy couple of days. I wrote all the names down and put them in a bowl and had my son pick one...



And he chose....
