Birthday Butterfly Card Making Video

Hello! In today's video I'm showing you how to do a reverse stencil technique. It's basically the same as regular stenciling, but instead of sponging the inside of a shape, you sponge around the outside. It's a very fun way to spotlight an image.

Here is the video, but if you would rather watch directly on Youtube, you can find it on my channel by clicking here.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a really great day!
