Stenciling & Masking

I continue to be inspired by the Online Card Class Mask-erade!  This card mixed stenciling and masking. 

I received by SimonSaysStamp June 2015 Card Kit in the mail so I had to try out the fabulous die cut included in the kit!  (Great kit this month!!)

I am trying out different possibilities to use with my stencils.  Today I used Liquitex Flexible Modeling Paste and colored it with Distress Inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade)  It mixed with the colors well.  I actually sponged some additional Spiced Marmalade over the top of the paste after it dried and that also seemed to work great.  I left a space for the die to take center stage.

I wanted to let the texture and die shine so kept it simple with some twine and a layer to match the die cut.  Here is a close-up of the texture from the modeling paste:

Thanks for looking!
