Best Wishes

I have been playing around with my stencils....not something I find easy.... so this card is a kind of experiment. I used a Distress Inked wash on the background card and sponged the chevrons in three different colours down the side. Then used some gold coloured texture paste over another stencil in the top corner. When this was all dry I stamped the bird image and sentiment, and added a few more tiny birds. I used the Distress Inks to colour the image. I've used the Stamplorations #34 sketch for my layout and am posting to Simon Says Wednesday challenge - to use stencils and as it has a 'colourful grunge' feel I'm also posting to Time Out Challenge #31. I used the palette at Colour Q#292 but missed the post.  Thanks for taking a peek

  1. Love your choice of stencils. The colors are lovely. The focal image is perfect for this, too! Well done! So glad that you join the fun over Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Stencil It” Challenge!

  2. Well for not finding it easy, you're sure doing it incredibly well! My jaw dropped to the floor on this one, Robyn!! I especially love the bit of texture you added in the upper right-hand corner. Just a gorgeous interpretation of the STAMPlorations sketch!

  3. So beautiful and just love the layering of the different colours with the stencils. Very pretty grunge, which I didn't know was possible until we did this challenge! So glad you joined us at TIME OUT!
