I had so much fun playing with the products from the new release. Today I'm using one of the new Slimline Stencils called Trees. I'm sure you have noticed a lot of slimline cards around the Interwebs lately, it seems to be one of the latest trends. I'm always a bit slow to pick up on the latest crafty fashion, but luckily Shery, the wonderful owner of STAMPlorations, is on top of the trends and making sure we have the best tools and crafting supplies available. Of course, the slimline stencils can be used on non-slimline cards too, but this time I thought I might as well try the new format. I started by inking the background using Distress Inks and then inked brown Distress ink through the Trees Slimline Stencil. I thought the stencilled trees were so beautiful against the ombre background so I didn't want to add anything else to detract from the simple beauty, so I just added a dark brown die cut sentiment using Everyday Sentiments Die.
