Stenciled Woodland Card

After seeing a Poppy Stencil show it made me want to play, one problem though, my stencil paste was in the loft so I thought I would make do with some tester pots of emulsion paint.
Ok, ok it's not what I should be using but it kept me sane through the workmen noise.


I used an old stencil from Dreamweaver, it is one that I instantly fell in love with.
I matted and layered up with Hunkydory Adorable Scorable and foam pads to create lots of dimension.


Now the good thing about using the paint was it stayed wet long enough for me to add my glitter.


The bad thing however was that the paint seeped underneath the stencil a little on the top left corner, however I can live with that and call it unique ha ha!

It looks amazing Jak and if you hadn´t told, noone would ever have noticed that left corner there, and I totally agree, it is a wonderful piece and very unique and beautiful, and I love the colored glitter, you´ve used on it here. It just looks fantastic.

very pretty card, you are lucky you can even remember where your stencil paste was lol. I have so much stash but can never find it. It turned out pretty good with paint, can't see anything wrong with it.

hugs from France,
