Hi stampers! I finally got a chance to play a little more with the Ornate Garden Suite/bundle, and I happened to see a post by Patty Bennett, where she used one of the Ornate Borders dies to create a stencil! I had been thinking the same thing, so I was excited to see it actually put to paper! You can see her post HERE. She chose to use brighter colors, I went with softer ones! So here we go:
When I started playing around, I was just using scrap paper, but it turned out pretty well, so I decided to go forward with it and create a card! I began by cutting a stencil from piece of cardboard from a cereal box :
I sponged Blushing Bride on the flower openings with a sponge dauber, and while the stencil was still in place, I used an aquapainter to add some Calypso Coral to the center and to shade the inner petals. I sponged the leaves with Pear Pizzazz, and also used my aquapainter to color in the tiny dots:
I added diecut borders from Ornate Borders and Be Mine Stitched Hearts, then topped it with a piece of Terracotta Tile gingham. I stamped a sentiment from Ornate Thanks, diecut it and added some pearls for a simple embellishment:
I love how this turned out! Thanks for popping in today!
My niece shared some pix of my great-nephews Jameson and Sawyer dying Easter eggs:
Their little faces are just SO precious! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
