Stencils as Masks

I've been finishing up swap cards for an ATC swap I'm in. It calls for the use of masks, so I decided to use once of Club Scraps stencils (a favorite!) to make a mask and color the background.

I placed my stencil, a starburst design from the "Sparkle" kit, on a sheet of white glossy cardstock and rubbed Microglaze from Judikins in the open areas. I then repeated it all over the cardstock. The Microglaze will leave a raised design in the shape of the stencil. I sprayed the cardstock with a combination of Glimmer Mists. After the paint had dried, I scraped off the Microglaze - leaving the white starburst pattern. The first photo above is for the ATC swap. I had some backgrounds left over so I made the "Smile" card using Club Stamp's Retro stamps and "Simply Beautiful" cardstock.
I'll be posting the card in the Club Scrap Pro Scrapbooking League Galleria for my cardmaking team.
