The inspiration for this challenge is located here at Nichole Heady's blog.
I didn't have any paste to use with my stencil so I went to Michaels to get some and they were out - hmmmmm, around Stamp-a-faire my local Michaels was out of a lot of those supplies too I wonder how many PTI fans there are in the Melbourne, Cocoa, Rockledge, FL area? Anyway, here are my two cards:
The first one I made using the Moroccan Stencil from Simon Says Stamps.
I then noticed that the instructions for the challenge emphasized the use of a cover plate for the stencil and a PTI product so I went back to the drawing board and created card number two using Happy Harlequins cover plate. I smudged a bit with the stencil - it was made out of paper - so I covered the smudges with a strip of white cardstock popped up with foam squares.
Majority of the supplies are the same between both cards. PTI White cardstock, Thanks All Ways stamp set and Simply Chartreuse ink. On card one the Simon Says Stamps products are the Moroccan Stencil and the border stamp from Cupcake Party stamp set. I love to emboss over my sentiments with Ranger Rainbow Embossing powder. The green paint I used with the stencils is Silks Shimmer Semi-gloss Acrylic Glaze in Pretty Peridot - great match to Simply Chartreuse. Below is an up close picture of the glaze and the rainbow embossing:
Thanks for looking and I really do appreciate comments...hint hint. Have a great day!
