Thank you card using pen work

JULY inspiration is Abstract by Robert Klippel

I chose to make a card.  Here is what I did.

I chose a stencil that I thought I could work with.  Then I picked a number of pens in similar tones.

I got my trusty little CM clips and attached the stencil to white paper and cardboard to hold everything in place.

Then I proceeded to very carefully use my pens to trace along the lines in the stencil. I alternated colours. I used the ruler to hold the stencil still.

I used the paper as a backing paper for my card.  I showed my son and he thought it was a patterned paper so I thin it has been successful. I have also coloured in the thank you stamp.

Thanks for looking.
