Get double duty from stencils you cut yourself by using them first as masks to ink around, then later, as actual embellishments on the layout.
ONE • In PhotoShop Elements, I applied a flower mask over my photo, then printed the photo and cut it out to use as the center of my layout. TWO • I cut several flower and leaf shapes with my Silhouette. I used the shapes as masks on the layout, applying ink on and around them. THREE • Next, I used those flower and leaf masks on the page as embellishments. FOUR • As a final touch, I stitched over the white masked lines of the inked leaves.
