Stenciled Heart

Quick post before I head to work. Couldn't resist the color combo at Dynamic Duos--Bright Pink & Black, which I love!  I'm working my way through the videos & techniques in the Stencil class & for this card I used embossing through a stencil. The stencil was laid over the Memory Box die cut heart & inked with Distress Ink picked raspberries. Then the stencil was removed & JudiKins Iridescent Sparkle powder was poured on. I'd never thought to emboss with Distress Ink & I'd totally forgotten I had that powder.  Two things from the video I can use with or without stencils.  I clear embossed Hero Arts
beautiful flourish on black & inked a doily with the picked raspberry ink.  The sentiment is by A Muse. One more Valentine ready to mail--yah! Thanks for your visit--I so appreciate hearing from you.

  18. Pink & black, doily and hearts, embossing and stenciling: a combination that's absolutely striking, eye-catching and beautiful! Classy and elegant card, Greta! Obviously, this class is *the* perfect fit for you! You've inspired me to add the class to my 'do' list (down the road), because these cards of yours are knockouts! Hugs~c
