I absolutely love stencils so for me, the hardest part of this challenge was determining which stencil to use (I have more than a few!). Eventually, I settled on a stencil from Stencil Girl called Cornish Petals - and some inspiration from the blooming pink peonies in my backyard to come up with this card:
I decided that I wanted to create an ombre embossing paste so I started out with a geneous amount of embossing paste on my craft mat and added a little bit of Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and applied the outer most paste, I then added a little bit more ink, and applied the middle section, and repeated the process fro the middle. I finished off the card with a die cut circle, a Studio Calico (twice embossed with gold powder) and some gold thread for a pretty simple card.
I will link up to the following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where we are challenged to use our favourite techniques
- Less Is More where the theme is stenciling
So now it's your turn - so grab your stencils and paste and have fun!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
