But stencils have made a resurgence in the paper crafting field (at least to me) and it isn't about lettering so much...they are being used in so many other ways.
In the August Simon Says Stamp Card Kit shown below a stencil was included. It is a Simon Says Stamp exclusive stencil and has that Moroccan look to it.
I used some Sizzix framelits to cut out the circles and create the black circle frame. I mounted with some popdots and added the flair and thought "how fun!". I was happy.
Here is another picture of the flair without out the glare....Flair with no GLARE! I'm a poet! ;)
