Stamplorations March Stencil Challenge

For this card I started out by die cutting the squares. Then I took out my stamp and MISTI. I altered the position of the stamp each time. And colored it with markers. Then I made a mask using a Post-It note. After I fussy cut the mask. I placed it over the kangaroo. And then I realized that I didn't have a stencil for grass. So I brought out one of a My Favorite Things Grassy Edges die cut out, along with a film transparency sheet. And created a homemade stencil. Once that was created I used one of my Amazon makeup brushes and applied the Mowed Lawn ink. Then I brought out another homemade stencil, for my clouds. When that was done. I lined the stamped pieces onto black cardstock. And then before placing that onto my card. I used my Lace stencil and applied ink.

I think what I created has a Spring/Summer vibe.
