Today I'm playing with layering stencils.
I layered my stencils on a tag and after finishing it, I cut it into 2 pieces and so was able to make 2 cards!
The first uses a smaller piece and is framed by a stamp. This is a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card.
My 2nd card uses a larger piece of the finished tag and is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

Here are photos of the steps I used in creating my layered stencils
First I used white acrylic paint through one of Tim's mini stencils pouncing the ink on with a sponge applicator on a blending tool.
Be sure to wash your stencil and sponge immediately after use.
then I layered a mini leaf stencil over the words using Distress Dried Marigold ink
I layered a mini grid stencil over the tag using Crushed Olive Distress Ink
I sponged over the edges with Ground Espresso Distress ink
and I sponged over the whole tag with Seedless Preserves and Scattered Straw. I used a baby wipe over the acrylic paint to remove any ink laying on top of that stenciling.
then I stamped over the stenciling with Archival Jet Black Ink.
I flicked water onto the tag to create water spots.
Here's the fun stamp set I used
