Mono-printing with Stencils...

Hi! I had a post on the Mudra Craft Stamps blog yesterday with some ideas on using mono-printing on your cards. You can check out the post here. I have a total of 8 cards and cover three different ways of doing it. You can also link your cards for the current Mudra challenge - Hello Summer.

I have always loved working with stencils. And Mudra definitely has a large variety to choose from. I created three cards from my mono-printed backgrounds.

Card 1:
The original panel with ink blending and stencilling.

Entering this card in the following challenges:

The Flower Challenge #32 - Embossing (Heat / Dry):

Simon Says Monday Challenge - Add Something Metallic:
I used Metallic Gold embossing powder by Ranger

May CAS Stencil Challenge:

Fab Friday #163:

Card 2:
The second panel after mono-printing. I absolutely adore the soft colours.

Entering this card in the following challenges:

I was very inspired by white flowers and really pale colours.
