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:
