Mod Squad Challenge - Step Up Your Stencil

 Dear Ones~

Welcome to another Mod Squad Challenge. It's my turn to host again, and I have chosen to challenge you to Step Up Your Stencil. I want you to stencil your card front and take it up a notch by embellishing it.


Gina K. has been in the stamping industry since 1998 and started Gina K. Designs in 2007. As the business grew, Gina asked her husband Tom to leave his position as an attorney to join her in the business. Together they built StampTV, an online video website featuring broadcast quality paper crafting videos, galleries, A social network for paper crafters and more! Since then they have created a new website called Gina K Designs. Gina now has over 200,000 followers over her various social media networks and video sites from all around the world. Gina’s goal is to continue to offer top quality signature products through her online store Gina K. Designs, along with informative and creative crafting videos. There is also a monthly card challenge, where you have 3 chances to win a $25 gift certificate. Visit that HERE.

 Here's my card:

As you can see, I embellished my stenciled background with a black pen and just doodled on it. I also used Crystalline Drops to make it more interesting. For this card I used a Gina K Designs Foliage Stencil, and sponged with Apple Mint and Sea Glass Inks. The greeting is from the Scripty Encouragement Stamp Set. Card stocks are Ocean Mist, Apple Mint and Black Onyx. I used Ocean Pearl Crystalline Drops for embellishment. 

Glad you stopped by, and don't forget to head on over to The Mod Squad Challenge Blog and play along. You could win the prize! I can't wait to see your wonderful creations, and I adore your comments.

I hope you all are well and staying away from others as much as possible. These are strange times, aren't we glad we have our craft to keep us sane?
Until next time, here's celebrating your Creative Muse.
