Stencilled Lace


I enjoyed making this card, enhanced by the fact that there are some Starlings in the nesting box in our back yard who think it is spring, not autumn, and they are currently sitting on eggs!!

The image was one I received in a RAK, and  coloured with Prismacolor pencils. I have no idea of the origins of the image. 
(Edited - it is from Create with TLC )

I mounted it over some silver glitter card, then onto a dark blue base card, that I had randomly  stamped some flowers over with Versamark ink.

I had recently purchased a second hand stencil, and decided to use it to make a border  - I found the only way to get a good outcome, was to stipple the colour through it with a fairly coarse,  rigid paintbrush.

The sentiment was embossed using silver holographic power, which echoed the sparkle in the silver paper.

I decorated the inside by stencilling the pattern in blue on the white liner - and promptly forgot to photograph it!!
