Wild is the theme at Simon Says Wednesday challenge this week.  I went with Wild colors.  I took my old Stampin Up inkpads and wend direct to paper with them.  OK, that is INTENSE.  How do you lighten that up?  Surprised smile LOL.  I took another online card class for background and this technique was shown.  I laid a stencil over the darkness and lightened it with a baby wipe by pressing into the open areas of the stencil.  I had taped the stencil down and then ran it through my big shot.  I LOVE the look.  I needed a 50th anniversary card for Sunday and i cut the Tim Holtz words out of white to help brighten this up a bit.  It was the perfect solution.  A few sequins with My Favorite Things stencil die and i think I’ll call this a wrap.
