stretch your dies with ebe essential arches

Do you ever stretch your cardmaking supplies by making DIY stencils? It's one of my favorite things! 

Recently I wanted to make a stencil with the Essentials by Ellen Sentiment Strips die but then I realized that it would just be a giant rectangle and not strips, LOL! So instead of making a stencil, I actually just used the die itself. I taped the die down and used blending brushes to blend right through it. 

After my success with ink blending through the Sentiment Strips, I decided to do it again the Essential Arches and check out what I made...
I used two sizes of the arch dies to ink blend arches on the card front. Then I topped it with the die cut frames.
I thought I was done after I stamped a sentiment directly on the card but I hated it so I added another die cut arch in the top corner to cover it up (see more about that on my IG feed).
Thanks so much for stopping by!

P.S. You can see that sentiment strip card HERE.
