Welcome to the Clearsnap and StencilGirl blog hop.

I had so much fun with these products - inks are great with stencils.   My first project is a glass case I found.  It was originally intended to be cross stitched, but I decided to use ColorBox Crafter's Ink with StencilGirl stencils instead.
 

I used the StencilGirl Uplifting Words Stencil with ColorBox Stone Crafter's Ink selecting "I am fearless" as the focal point.


Used the Apter Stencil with ColorBox Stone Crafter's Ink and Ann Butler's Berry and Lilac Crafter's ink, I added a variety of elements around the case.  This is a perfect reminder that I can do anything.


I couldn't pass up this cute little change purse.   It was just begging to be modified!!


 
 

Love the random lines on the purse and since Crafter's Ink is very moist, you have time to ink up a sheet of cardstock using the reverse stencil technique when done with the purse.


It's best to place the cardstock on top of the stencil and roll over it with the ColorBox Art Wheel.  I ended up with a cool distressed effect.


Next, I used the Past, Present, Future Stencil with ColorBox Crafter's Inks, inking just the portions of the stencil I wanted to use.
 
 
 
Put all those elements together and this card is the result.
