I ordered a set of Claritystamp Stencil Brushes and they arrived yesterday. I didn't think I would have a chance to do any playing until Sunday afternoon, but my plans changed for today and I decided to make a MIM card using my brushes to create an inkblended background. I'm not quite sure how I feel about these brushes yet; I definitely have to get used to them. My first attempt was not very successful: I got a harsh blob and some of the brush's bristles sneaked under my masking tape. My second attempt, this card, was much better, but I found that I still had to use some effort to get a decent blend. I'll keep on practicing. P.S., the brushes are huge!
I used the roadway die (with attached trees) from City Scene to stamp my sentiment on. A very simple and quick card. Nothing fancy.
