Third post for today...

The second masked frame technique that Jennifer taught today in class was using a stencil over the negative space and a die cut mask.  I used some Washi paper the size of the card front and used my largest SB rectangle die to create the large negative space.  I used my SB Scalloped Heart Nestability to make the heart shape and used the positive inside the rectangle.  I taped the card down to my work space and then taped the Heidi Swapp stencil over the card front.  I used my blending tool to apply Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe Shadow ink and Certainly Celery dye ink.  When done I removed the heart mask and the frame mask and stamped the sentiment from Winnie & Walter in Hero Arts Charcoal Shadow ink.

I chose these colors so I can submit this to this week's Color Throw Down Challenge blog:

I am also submitting this to a Blog Named Hero challenge to use stencils.

Thanks for coming by!
