Just Add Ink #373...Stencils!




It's time for another fun challenge over at Just Add Ink  and this week Karren has challenged us to use "Stencils" on our projects...Fun!
So as l had yet to open my "Pattern Party Decorative Masks" this challenge was perfect!

I was tempted to use the embossing paste, but decided that Versamark and clear embossing powder suited the project l had in mind better.
To apply the Versamark ink l used a sponge dauber direct to the inkpad and went over the design a couple of times making sure it was nice and wet and then gave it a liberal coating of the clear embossing powder.
For some pretty detail l added some fussy cut flowers from the "Whole lot of Lovely" dsp and some leaves using the retired Bird Builder punch in Pear pizzazz and Gold Glimmer. The greeting is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.



Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and check out the fab creations from the rest of the design team.

Thanks for stopping by!
