Stencil time




Keeping with the green theme of St. Patricks I thought I would post a few cards I made with a stencil from STAMPplorations designed by Sherry Russ.  The top one is done with distress inks and the hello is stamped.  The second one is done with pearlescent embossing paste mixed on a craft mat with a bit of distress ink.  I've been wanting to try this for a while and finally played.  Loved the results, click on the image and you will really be able to see the shimmer! This one has a die cut one it due to the dimension of the embossing paste. 

Have a wonderful and hopefully creative weekend!

A few fun challenges:
ColorQ #333 (see top card)
STAMPlorations Never Ending Challenge
Word Art Wednesday #222-223 - Anything Goes

Both are just beautiful but love the shimmer in the second one. Green for St.Pats worked very well.

I really like the one with the embossing paste - it adds so much more texture and dimension to the card.

Love this stencil, and even more, love the 2 striking cards you've made with it. How clever to change the direction, and make a 2-fer, and change it up a mite. Very effective, and very pretty cards. TFS & Have a wonderful week
