Stencil and Color

This is the 22nd week of A Card a Week Challenge. One card a week--for 52 weeks--with a preset challenge for each month. June is "try a new technique" challenge.  Every Tuesday I will post a card that fits the theme of the monthly challenge. This is the second card for June!

I made this card using a Gina K Designs stencil called Water Droplets.  I have seen many beautiful cards in the past few months using stencils and I picked up a few last month at the Stamp Expo in Milwaukee.  Gina K was at the Craft Fancy booth, so I got to see her demo some of these cards.  I also used some of the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks that I have had for awhile, but not used.  This challenge is also becoming "use what you have"!  I have more stencils to try out, so this is just a start!  

We also did a window washing project at church two weeks ago, and I need some thank you cards to send out to those who helped. I love this stamp for those who volunteer their time and efforts!  I really like the look of this card and hope you do too.  

Here is the inside of my card:

I hope you will stop back each Tuesday to see my creation for my A Card a Week Challenge!  June is "try a new technique" month--so be sure to check back to see what new techniques I will be showing off!
