Baby Carriage

Welcome

I would love to take this time to introduce my newest followers
 Mac Mable of The Sweetest of Peas - please pop over and visit her - her work is wonderful and you will be inspired,
and Monica of Handmade Cards With Love For Charity, who is the queen of making beautiful cards with  up-cycled elements.


The background of this card was one I made at my class this month, where I used a technique called reverse stenciling - I altered the technique slightly and after brayer-ing the dye onto the stencil, I moistened it with a spray of silver shimmer mist.  I can be seen, but the camera did not pick it up in the photos as it is quite subtle.


I inked the edge of the stenciled layer with one of the colours I used on the stencil, and the the purple layers with the other ink.  The white embossed sentiment was an unmarked stamp.
 

I finished the card with a die cut of a baby carriage in the purple, painted with WoS, which you can just see here.  The die is Ornate Pram by Wild Rose - and was a RAK from the lovely Kary at Papercrafting and Travels

But I'm hoping to be able to pop in at some stage over the weekend. So glad you found the gorgeous blossom papers. Aren't they lovely and such a nice weight too! Big hugs, Wends xoxo
