Monika and Billie Week 9 - Background and or no designer paper / May your birthday

Monday April 27, 2015
We are on Week 9 of our challenge between Monika at Creative with Monika and me to create a background and or no designer paper challenge.
This will be our last challenge between me and Monika till after the summer time. It's just a busy time between us and will give us time to recharge.  BUT ,,, I will keep posting new cards using my scraps or seldom used stamps and put them on days that I don't have a card to post from a design team.  
We were both inspired by Jennifer McGuire and her off set stencil projects. You can see all of her great creations on Jennifer McGuire Ink  I love her ideas and she really inspires me.

This is my card.. I have very few stencils and I really didn't want to buy any at this time.. BUT I do have some die plates so I took my old standby X-ray film and cut out my own stencil using a PTI die plate.  Then I did like Jennifer McGuire .. I took pink card stock and laid the stencil over it and using white embossing ink and a sponge finger dauber I filled in all the open areas. I did let it set for a couple of days to dry because I was doing other projects.. Then I came back and laid the stencil back over the card stock but off set it just a smidge and then took marvelous magenta by stampin up and went over those same open areas again on the stencil and this is what I got.. COOL HUH??? I LOVE IT.  I then let it dry for a few more days and finished it yesterday.. I took white card base, layered black and then the technique piece. I love black and pinks.. I stamped the sentiment by PTI and added some black behind it and some black enamel dots and called it done. I did try the floss behind  the sentiment but really did not like it on this one.. maybe next time, but for now I thought it was cool just the way it was. I will for sure do this again.
I hope you head over to Monika's blog at Creative with Monika and see her creation and give her some love.
