STRETCH a STENCIL : My STAMPlorations August Sketch challenge

While paying with a stencil to make This card for Becca. I came across an idea/question.
I think I did using :
It's like an "I SPY"...can you see something that is really meant to be something else! 
Here is the card.

  • I used the mask from the stencil,(it is the skirt from the stencil and it comes with 2 different large "skirt" shapes) 
  • inked it up and spritzed with water, 
  • then placed it on the cardstock. 
  • Lifted it up 
  •  inked the other mask in a different color 
  • repeated the process.
  • There is a SLIM mask from the stencil that I used for the stem...inked in greens.
  • Then I placed the stencil over the TULIP and stamped a sentiment through the stencil opening.
Sentiments from STAMPlorations: 
Blooming Buds
Party Time

I used the Sketch from STAMPlorations to STRETCH my Stencil for this card.
