AAA Birthday challenge #5 - Use a stencil

Good morning! I hope you guys are having an awesome week and are ready to join us for a fun new challenge over at AAA Birthday.
I had a great time with this month's challenge!

For this card I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire, the queen of cardmaking.

I first applied a heavy layer of white pigment ink using the Blossom stencil from Create A Smile. Then I removed the stencil and heat setted the white pigment ink so it is dry enough to add the colored inks on top of it.

Once the stencil was cleaned I put it back on top and used it again to blend Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink.

I wanted the card to shine so I added another layer with Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Sparkle texture paste.

That's all from me.
Don't forget to find out what the other Design Team members created for this month's challenge!

  1. Awesome technique to really make your stencilled pattern shine and shimmer. It looks quite 3D and textured and at first I thought you'd used embossing paste. Fab card!

  2. This is super pretty, Nancy! Love the ombre look and of course the shimmery look. Hugs, Tina

  3. Beautiful card ! Love the colour combo you used and the shimmer is the perfect final touch. Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at ATSM.

  4. Gorgeous card Nancy, love the colours you have used! hugs AlliC XoX
