Handcut Stencil Card

Hi lovely people out there! I am here to show you another card I created using a handcut
stencil. The fascination with stencils still continues after the Stencilled class....

I have been experimenting with stencils when I was in school and I used to trace the patterns that I liked and cut them using a normal craft knife or blade. I still have many of those stencils with me. After watching the Stenciled class, I was looking for more designs in my stash and didn't want to indulge in buying many of them and then not using them. Also I didn't have the patience to order and then wait to create till my stuff arrived.

So I decided to try cutting some patterns on my own. Here is a one with simple diagonal lines. I placed the stencil on CS and dabbed distress inks on it. Then I inverted the CS to make the criss cross pattern.

The paper I used to make the stencil is from an old diary. These were the separators inside the diary. These papers are of high gsm than the normal paper and have a glossy finish. I find it easy to cut through these papers.

Here is the stencil and the finished CS... I went in a VIBGYOR manner with the inks. I wanted to finsih the stenciled CS with ditressing the edges with co-ordination colors.

 This is the card I made using this as a background. Does anyone of you recognize this pattern I used on CS. Let me leave this open as a small quiz here. I will come back with the answer tomorrow :) HINT ***Clothing Brand***
