This week over at the Simons Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog the theme is stencils, one of my favourite things. I love ink blending, misting and embossing with them. Anything, really.
I need to add some sympathy cards to my stash, never a fun thing, and came up with this little number ...
After it had all dried I glued my inked-up stencil back over my design, offsetting it just a smidgen to leave a trace of white lines in the cut. I stamped my sentiment (Papertrey Ink Keep It Simple: Sympathy) with PTI Smokey Shadow ink, trimmed the panel and adhered it with foam tape to my card base.
I love the way it looks a bit like a stained glass window. It was very hard to photo; I may have had to stand on my head to do it!
