Classy Cards 'n Such Stencil Challenge

Hi, Joy here letting you know about a great opportunity to win a prize by entering a Stencil Challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such.  Today Beverly, owner of Classy Cards 'n Such would like to see what you can do with stencils --- me too!!  I have so much to learn about stenciling and would love to see how you will inspire us!

So grab that stencil and show us!!  Just make your project and go to Beverly's blog, Classy Cards 'n Such and link it there.

Here is what I did - first time using Dreamweavers's Pearlescent Embossing Paste.
I used the stencil called Corner Flowers by Dreamweavers.  I spread on a thin layer of embossing paste and let it dry.
While the image was drying I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment from Hugs & Kisses by JustRite Stamps onto a stamped image of an ornament from Noel Christmas Ornaments and cut out just the center of the ornament. (which was the perfect sized frame for my sentiment)
After the flower image dried, I placed the brass stencil back over them and colored each flower with a wood peg blending tool using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  I was going for a water color, blended looking image.
The cut out center was then popped up using Joy Pop-ups and added pearls to a few of the centers of the flowers.
This was then matted on teal cardstock that had been corner - rounded (is that a word?)  Ha,ha!

Recap of Supplies:
Corner Flowers Brass Stencil
Pearlescent Embossing Paste
Thinking of You sentiment
Noel Christmas Ornaments
Distress Inks
Joy Pop-up Foam Pads
White Pearls

Thanks for looking at my card - can't wait to see what you do - have a HAPPY stamping day.
