MCT Trending Now ~ follow your dreams!

Hello crafty friends, today is "Trending Now" over at My Creative Time!  Have you noticed all the stencils at "M"s or "HL"?  They're every where, but these "babies" aren't the stencils from the eighties!  LOL!  Well did you know that you can take you dies and create your own stencil?  I'm going to try to explain what I did to create this card.

The first thing I did was die cut the three cartoon clouds from a 4 x 6 piece of chipboard, spacing them far apart.  Next I took the negative part and used it as a stencil to create the background.  I randomly used the stencil and versamark ink for the clouds then used clear embossing powder and heat set.  Once it was cool, I used distress ink for the sky.

Before you go out and buy more stencils, take a look at your dies or what dies you want to purchase  to see what you can create.
