Fun Technique

I am previewing my sample cards from the class I will be teaching this Fall at our Scrapbook Fun Fest on the Coast event.

I used  3 Distress Spray colors, a maple leaf stencil I cut with my Silhouette & stamps from Just For Fun stamps.  I came up with 3 different looks.            
Bare Tree  ( F3328),  Grass (A012), & Sentiments (UMS7020)         

Here they are all together.  I mounted two on Sunflower cardstock & one on a red mat.  The card bases were Red, Dk. Green, & Sunflower.  The tree stamp pops differently on each card. 

I love this technique!  You use not only the stencil but the leaf mask.  When finished spraying on the stencil I turn it over & press it down (with wet spray stain still on the stencil) & gently rub on another 5" x 3 3/4" cardstock.  Voila...another background!  In fact, there is enough spray to make a 3rd background.
