That's What Friends Are For
Last night I went back to Day 1 of the stenciling classes & today I finished a card made with Debby's technique of sponging over a stencil & using a vellum sentiment to let the inking show through. I'm entering the challenge at ODBD where the requirement is to use only red, pink & white. I sponged Tim Holtz bubble stencil with Distress Inks festive berries, worn lipstick & spun sugar. The stamp was one of my first ODBD purchases, as I always loved that song. Dry embossing wasn't part of the video & I wondered if it would detract from the stencil. To my eye the card needed something so I did it anyway & I like it. Finished off with a pink & white floss bow, a pearl & 2 COPIC colored sequins.
So much info just in the videos I've gotten to so far. It's going to take awhile to try out all the techniques, but I already have another card started. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
Edited to add: Entering SSS Wednesday & SSS Work It Wednesday, since using stencils is new to me.
