Flowers for You

Meet today's card.
First, I want to say thanks so much to Shery Russ from STAMPlorations for this great stencil included in a prize pkg. I won.  I just got a chance to play with it and this is what I came up with.

I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and used my technique called Swipe Your Credit Card.  To see more, check out this post.
I rubbed some of my Distress Oxide inks onto a sheet of acetate, sprayed with a bit of water and dipped the edge of an old credit card into the wet ink then pulled that across my paper.  I love how you can leave some white untouched areas and put colour wherever you need it.
When that was dry, I placed the stencil over my inky piece and using a slightly darker shade of DOX ink, I blended over  the stencil.  Love how it turned out.
I then stamped some script along the sides then stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and white heat embossed it.  I added some white paint splatters then simply mounted it onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Still haven't tried your credit card swiping - must remember to give it a go. Love the stenciled flower - it looks fabulous against the background of blues and violet.
