Stencil and Stamp

After a horribly long day at work and busy evening I realized I had not made one single thing for Winterstamp and refused to go to bed until I did so! The stencil and stamp challenge caught my attention. I don't have any stencils, but I created one by punching four hearts on a strip of paper . I stamped over my template with French Script (Hero Arts). I then added red distress ink directly over the punched hearts.
I now had a positive and negative stencil to make a card.
For the card below I backed my template with a strip of Cuttlebug embossed black cardstock. I had swiped white ink across the raised part which gave it a nice effect. The sentiment on this card is from Studio G. Background paper is by Creative Imaginations. This card below is the result of my stencil. I added a sentiment by Hero Arts. I also stamped the French Script with white ink onto black cardstock in order to make my background paper.

They really are lovely! I like how you did the sentiments on a large tab. And now you've got me thinking about digging out some of my old punches, too! :)
