AAA Cards Challenge - Stencilling

Afternoon all, hope you're enjoying the Easter break.  I'm happy to stay in my craft room today - it's so windy outside, and I can't stand the wind. 

Here's what I've been doing:


I decided to dig out some of my old stash - if you're anything like me I buy it because I need it and then put it in a drawer and go on and buy more stuff because I need it.  Anyway, this is my intention for now, to use up some of my stuff.

For this card I used Imagination Crafts stencil paint and one of their embossing masks.  I ran it through my TODO first using a rubber mat also from Imagination Crafts (bought from the NEC earlier this month) which give a deeper impression (I was skeptical about buying this when I saw it but it really does work).  Then obviously I stencilled with the paint.  The sentiment is from a Card-io set.

I am going to enter this into the AAA cards challenge who aptly has a theme of Stencilling this week. 

Thanks for dropping by.

So pretty! I just love the extra dimension that you created by dry embossing first - and the paint application is perfect! Thanks so much for sharing with us at AAA Cards! Jill
