Card Challenge Day 23 - Stencil It

Today at 365 Cards, all we had to do was use a stencil on our cards. I had a tree cut from from my cricut that I inked around to give the effect of the outline of a tree top on the background of the card - sort of a reverse type stenciling. I then used the Bird from the Nature-Flights of Fancy stencils that I had from Tattered Angels. I glimmer misted the bird stencil with Patina and then used a little Spiced Marmalade Distress ink to add just a hint of some more color! I curled the tip of the beak up and the tips of the wings - wish the picture was better, it looks so much nicer in person. I know the card is rather simple but I like how it turned out!

What the tree looked like on the background doing a reverse stenciling type effect! Instead of wasting the glimmer mist spray left on the stenciling, I made another image with it. I just flipped the stencil over and made another bird. I will be using it on another project in the future I am sure!
