Stencil Blog Hop day 3

Good afternoon and welcome to day 3 of the STAMPlorations stencil bloghop.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments you've left, you certainly like these stencils!
Today I've gone with a different stencil Old Rose Prints. The pattern of roses suggested a soft delicate approach so here it my card.


I first taped the stencil over a panel of white card and using some homemade embossing paste I spread it over the stencil. I removed it carefully and set the panel to oneside to dry. When completely dry and with the stencil washed and dry I placed it back over the embossed roses and inked through it with some pink DIs. 
I thought it was kind of romantic in appearance so went with the sentiment from the Noteworthy set and embossed it in gold. I looked around for some matching pink ribbon but couldn't find any in the stash so I used a die cut and inked it in the same DI as the roses. The frame for it was die cut using a Sizzix die and a couple of pearls coloured with Copics to match were added. I also inked the pink background mounts  to match as well, it beats trying to find coordinating papers!
That's about it then for today.

Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here.
