Stencilled Heart


Hi, I can't believe it's February already!
They say time flies when you're having fun, so I'd better stop LOL!

I've seen so many gorgeous cards using stencils and embossing paste lately that it inspired me to have a go with mine. I bought some Dreamweaver stencils late last year and hadn't used them yet.

 I used structure paste as I really like the rough texture. I do have some smooth paste too so I'll be playing with that as well.

When the paste was dry I put the stencil back on and sponged seedless preserves distress ink onto it. I tried to go from dark to light but I'm not sure the photo shows it too well. I've had the metallic heart brads for ages so it was good to finally use them,

There's a few challenges I'm going to link up to.

The Card Concept has a texture theme.
This is my 2nd entry. The first one was a clean and layered card. I think this one is more clean and simple.

At CASology the theme is purple. One of my fave colours!

At Addicted to Stamps & More they have a gorgeous inspiration photo.


Materials used: Dreamweaver stencil; distress ink; Stately embossing folder; hammer card base, brads and sentiment sticker from stash.

 Hope you have a happy weekend and thanks for visiting :)
