Just Add Ink #373 - Just Add Stencils

Happy Friday lovely friends ~

We have a brand new challenge over at Just Add Ink and Karren suggested we add stencilling to our projects this week. Fun!

Considering it's been a bitter cold few days in Canberra, this little jar of flowers looks more like spring! It was so fun to create. I broke out my new Embossing Paste & Pattern Party Decorative Masks for this card - I love the texture! If you haven't tried the new Paste you really must, it's sooo easy to use.


Another new feature on this card is the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set & matching Framelits. I didn't actually use the stamps here, rather I cut the flowers out of scraps of Whisper White c/s & used my Watercolour Pencils to add colour roughly then moved it around with my Aqua Painter. I was very happy with the result.


I'm not sure if you can see the shimmer I added with Wink of Stella in the above pic but it does show a bit more of the texture created by the Embossing Paste.

The design team has created lots of gorgeous cards for your inspiration this week so pop over to JAI & check them out. We'd love to see your own stencilled projects so join the challenge & link up!

Have a great weekend!
