Hello Lovelies! Simon Says Stamp's Full of Thanks Card Kit is all about foiling and stenciling. I'm always griping about coloring with markers etc., so there was a little happy dance when I realized that I was going to be able to stencil my way through adding color to each of the images on the Stamp Set!
For me the stencils takes the stress out of coloring and I can just have fun, so I broke out a rainbow of Pawsitively Saturated Inks and got to work!
I can't believe that I didn't even touch the the foiling goodies yet; that just means more fun to come!

This card is so simple that I won't do a step by step walkthrough, but I wanted to share a few tips on how I made it:
Image is stamped in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black
Stenciling is done next with the Detail Blending Brushes; darker shades of each color are used to create depth or shadows
Ink-blending follows stenciling using the Large Blending Brushes
Distress Sprayer is used to splatter the stenciled layer; cover the image with post-its to mask it off
mocha Ink mixed with a little water is then splatters onto the stenciled layer with a toothbrush :-) (told you that you would need it for this card)
I used a lot of inks here and you can follow the same colors or use your favorites; this will work using most dye-based stamping inks.
Big crafty hugs for stopping by Lovelies.
