A Skipping Stones Blog Hop

Hello Everyone and Happy Saturday!

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design Team Tutorials and Tips Blog Hop! If you started from the beginning, you should be coming from the Skipping Stones Design Blog.  If you just happened upon this hop, you might want to start there.
My card today uses a very addictive technique, Stamping with Stencils.

This is so simple and is a great background for a large sentiment stamp.  I have used the 'JOY' from the set, Joy Stamp Set.
To start, you need just a few things~ A stencil, ink and either water color paper or mixed media paper.  I used mixed media paper.  You will also need a spritzer or spray bottle. 

Ink up the stencil~

And spritz it with water~

 And flip it over onto your paper~

That's it!  Remove the stencil and let your paper dry.
You can now finish your card.  I embossed my 'Joy' sentiment with black embossing powder.

Please leave some love along the way for all of the talented ladies!  There will be a stamp set give away to one lucky winner! You have until Wednesday, Sept 16th to comment!
Ready to see what the rest of the team has for you?  Head on over to Tanja's blog to see her beautiful card!
Thanks for hopping with us!
