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.
