Today I have some cards where I used stencils in the background to complement the card toppers I was using. It was fun to use my stencils for this rather than just the usual mixed media techniques.
For all three I had toppers and papers from a Making Cards magazine set but on the DL card I needed something else to make the card complete. So I grabbed these dots/circles stencils and stencil brushes.
I thought that as the papers were quite graphic and bold the softer circles and dots would work well.
Then adding the embellishments which were also circular helped keep with the theme.
For each of them I added glossy accents to the eyes and the nose for the monkey and shimmer with my wink of Stella to other bits.
Love these cards with the contrast of the stencilling and the papers.
