Hey, well it has been some time since I have had a chance to post anything, I have made very few cards of late, and took pictures of even less. However I sat down last night and used a stencil that I had bought over a year ago but had misplaced. It was one of those moment where I knew I had bought it however, couldn't place it at all. But low and behold it was lurking in my ribbon box that I had got round to sorting this week. I have only ever used this technique once, and was quite impressed with the outcome, and despite my first thoughts its not actually that messy.
I choose the colour scheme Pink, as two of my friends have had baby girls in the last week. Hope you like the card, I am not sure about the ribbon I have used and its application to the sentiment tag, but it was getting late.
I used the following to achieve this card:
Craftworks cards 15cmx15cm Square
Pink gingham ard
Pearlised white paper
"With Love" Hartcage rubber stamp company
Flower stencil from Imaginationcrafts.co.uk
Studio G chalks, pink on the inside petal, red on the outside edge
Make and create pink and red ribbon set
Kars corner punch
I paper pieced the flower from the stencil with the Gingham and pearlised card and chalked it appropriatly, and inserted the ribbon in between to become a feature in the card.
