A Sticker and Shimmery Flowers

Welcome

I designed this card with two challenges in mind, and I am very happy with the outcome.


I bought a stencil yesterday, (by Zyneri.com) and used it today, sponging it with Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade D Is.


The sentiment was silver embossed


to go with the silver sticker butterfly that has sat in my stash for more years than I can recall - can't even remember the last time I used any off the sheet!!


To finish I put some distress stain on an acrylic block and picked it up with a fine, wet paintbrush to give some splatters, and painted the (dry) petals with Wink of Stella


Love the finished card, and I'm linking it to:




(The Stencil is NUBUS)

This is such a lovely card Maxine. You did a good job with the stencil. I never get such a 'clean' outline as that. The wink of stella pen shows up well too. Very nice!!

Such bright flowers. This card makes me happy. The butterfly sticker is a nice touch. I'm not even going to mention how old my silver stickers like that are..... !

That is a real pretty card Maxine. I love that you have used Distress Inks because they are my favourites and it is good to know someone else uses them in several ways. They are such versatile inks.
That is a lovely stencil and you have used it so well.
Hugs (and thanks for the visits to my blog) xx Neet
