Stamp over Stencil . . .

I hope you're having a fabulous Labor Day Weekend!
We had such a great time at grandson, Jonathan's 18th birthday bash yesterday!  And today we are headed over to the neighbor's a little later in the day for a cookout!  I love visiting and spending time with family & friends!!!

But before it's time to head over, I thought I'd take a peek around blogland and found another awesome technique to try.  What I found to play with today is called STAMPING OVER STENCILS.  I spotted it on the MFPSpeedy TV Site.  It's easy, fun and I'm thrilled with the outcome ... what do you think?

Isn't this cool!
Using this technique places the butterflies in the background and keeps the stencil pattern in the foreground!  Awesome!  I decided to add the Sue Wilson 'Greek Island Collection' corners (found HERE) and popped them up for ANOTHER dimension.  

I've been having so much fun this week ... taking time to try some NEW (to me) techniques.  Did you catch my cards (HERE ... HERE ... and HERE) which utilized the White Wash technique?  And tomorrow I'll be sharing a card (with tutorial) using the Bokeh technique. 

Have you tried any new techniques lately?  If so, leave me a link in the comment section of this post.  I would LOVE to pop over to see what you've created and give it a try!! 

Ooops forgot to mention I created this card for the MFP Stamp Shop: Speedy Fox and Friends #278 Challenge which is to use this technique.  Let's see if I can find a few additional challenges to share my card in:
Fantasy Stampers Challenge - The color Purple
GraphIt Colour Challenge - Anything Goes/Backgrounds
Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge - Anything Goes

Well time is flying so I'd better get movin'!
Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!
