Rather than using this Stamplorations hexagon stencil to ink through the holes, I inked the stencil itself with Distress Inks and then after spritzing with water, took a print from it. I quite like the watercolour effect. I simply accompanied it with a Sizzix  die cut flower and a Penny Black die cut sentiment.

Stencil It

Just us Girls has this picture Inspiration!

One of the sentiments produced by one of the DT appealed to me and so I decided to use it too!
I made it on the computer using a Drift Wood font for the capital letters and My Own Topher for the rest, and paired it with a little image from the Rubber Stamp Gallery!
