MIM: Stenciled Edges

Lizzie shows us how to 'stencil our edges' this week on MIM.

I stenciled the edges of my A2 card base with the awning striped stencil from 
the Market Street, Make it Market.
First inking the yellow vertically then turning the stencil horizontally and inking
it again with Mint Julep. 
(I can't remember which designer showed this technique during release, 
But I love it! Creates a big bold plaid!)
Maybe now as subtle as Lizzie's tutorial, think I got a bit heavy handed!
Then, as Lizzie did, I cut off close to 1/8" on all edges to soften.

When I cut the Shape Shifter Oval die out, I purposely glued down only the
center, so the top and bottom stood out slightly. 

It was the first time using Fresh Bouquet, and it's already a favorite.

Sentiment is from Penned Elegance.
