Challenge 8 - Technique - More From Your Dies #2

Yesterday, Leslie, Scrapy Land DTM, talked about using the negative space but did you also know you can use some of your dies as stencil, and this particular set of Balloons will work nicely. If the dies themselves do not work as a stencil consider using the negative space as a stencil if you don’t use it to make a card.
Be sure to secure your card to your workspace 
and then secure the die (or negative space stencil) to the card. I used washi tape but you can also use blue tape as well. Using Tim Holtz Inks and a dauber you can begin filling in die with some color
As you can see I used various colors with the different sized balloons, layering over a bit with the inks.

And here is the finished card 

Here is the card that used the original diecuts themselves that I misted with some inks.

There you have it, using your dies for more than just a diecut. Using the diecuts, using the negative space and using the die as a stencil
