Stencil it!

I had an absolutely peaceful and relaxing Mother's Day this past weekend and took the time to make a few cards. It was exactly what I wanted to do on my special day. :)

It had been awhile since I had played with my stencils, so I pulled out a pretty floral one from My Favorite Things (Spring Flowers, now retired) and blended white pigment ink through it on a kraft panel. Once the pigment ink had dried, I sponged dye inks through it over top in an ombre fashion. A white stitched scalloped circle die cut adds a pop of brightness along with the stamped sentiment. Everything was glued to a black card base with some glitter along the edge. 

I'm playing along in this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is to use stencils. Have a great day everyone! Thanks for stopping in.
