The team at Scrap'n Stamp Canada are hoppin' again and this time the theme is Stencils.  Stencils are definitely an overlooked item in my craft room yet when I do use them I love them - so why don't I use them more? 
I'm sure after all the inspiration on this hop I'll be using them a lot more. And guess what?
 There's a sale on stencils -20% OFF - until midnight Sunday, March 8th. 
Be sure to leave me a comment - I'd love to know what your favorite way to use stencils is. One lucky person who comments will win a $50 Gift Certificate to the SHOP! Think of all the stencils you could buy with that. 

I've been sooo busy lately that sadly I haven't had as much time as I'd like to stamp. It's a good busy thankfully. Stencils are great for when you need a quick card. All I did for this card is using a pencil I traced some triangles from the MFT Triangle Stencil onto some Tim Holtz water color paper. Next I grabbed some Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers - I used the rainbow colors -  ROYGBIV - added a little bit of ink at the edges of the triangle and then with a water brush I pulled the ink out to fill in the whole triangle. Super simple and super relaxing too.

Once the card was dry I used a fine black sharpie to outline all the triangles, then I traced on a few smaller ones but did not color them in. I added a few lines of dots for a bit of fun. 
I love all the patterns on this card - triangles, dots, and stripes - I'd never do that in an outfit but I love it on the card.

Don't forget to leave me a comment letting me know your favorite technique to do with stencils. And be sure to check out the Sale on Stencils before Midnight Sunday (March 8th).

Thank you Bunny - I could picture it with some more neutral colors too for a masculine card.
