Gather in Love

Hello
I wanted to get a chance to play with this wonderful Skeleton Leaf stencil and this great sentiment from Impression Obsession. They just seemed to go together well.  
I love this time of year when we are reminded about all we need to be thankful for.

I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and positioned the leaf over the top securing it with some Pixie Spray.  Pixie Spray is a repositionable spray for use with stencils. 
Next, I took a baby wipe and squeezed on a small amount of Peeled Paint Distress Re-inkers onto it.  ** Wear rubber gloves to prevent your hands from being all inky**
I took the inked baby wipe and pressed it onto my stencil.  Still using the same wipe, I squeezed on some Peacock Feathers DI and repeated the process.  I find this technique gives the inked background a more subtle look, more hand painted.  I added a bit of Salty Ocean and let the piece dry.
When it was dry, I splattered the front with some more ink, then stamped the sentiment using my Misti.


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Snow Fun

Good Morning
Time for a fun card using some stamps from MFT and this great stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.

I began by placing the Interlocking Squares stencil over my heavy white cardstock then sponged on some Gina K Amalgam ink over it with a blending brush.  I wanted the background to have a faint designs so the snowflakes could be the star of the show and that ink worked great for this.
Next, I placed the piece into my Misti and stamped the sentiment using some black Versafine Clair ink.  Leaving the piece in my Misti, I randomly stamped the snowflakes around the sentiment.
I added some dark blue Nuvo drops to the center of my snowflakes.  I mounted the piece onto some white cardstock then onto a piece of kraft to help pick up the colour of the background.
