You're the Best!

Hi everyone,

I'm here with a card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  It's all about stencils!  

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

I started out with a piece of Canson 140# watercolour paper and with some Mustart Seed distress ink I made a background.  Then about 2 weeks later I was looking at it on my desk and thought it could some some Texture Paste, so I took a stencil and added that to it.  Then another week later I finally figured out what I wanted to do with the panel.

Here it is.  You can barely see the paste but it's there!

I used the Stitched Due 3 dies from Pretty Pink Posh to cut out the vellum.  I added some white thread on top for some interest.

The I took the sunflower from the Lawn Fawn set "Friendship Grows" and coloured those in with my Koi water colour paints.  I added the sentiment from the Avery Elle "Hand written note" set in Memento Onyx black ink and cut out the banner ends.  I thought it needed something else so I wrapped some May Arts twine around the ends and popped it up with foam tape.

I added some Beatle Black sprinkles from Doodlebug along with some clear sequins from Simon Says Stamp.  I added the panel to an A2 sized card base and called it done!


Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
