Way of Life

Hello and Welcome
Here is another card I made using a previously stencilled background I had in my stash.
I love it as the backdrop for this large sentiment.

So here is what I did.
I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock.  I placed the Lace Doily stencil from A Colorful Life Designs over my paper and rubbed on some Carved Pumpkin and some Dried Marigold DOX inks, blending them together to cover the front.
I placed the piece into my Misti and stamped the large sentiment from STAMPlorations onto my card front.  It sure does make a statement.  
Leaving the piece in my Misti, I stamped the flowers along the bottom edge.  
I mounted it onto a piece of black cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.



Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.


Here is the stencil I used:

Such a pretty stencil and love how you use part of it, so it can then look very different. Wonderful silhouette stamping and a fabulous sentiment, which I love x.

I love the way you have made a real feature of the sentiment Kare, and the stencilled background is stunning and I adore the added silhouette flowers, and the orange tones with the black is so pretty. x

A great sentence and a very nice design.
On the background, the sentence and the silhouette stamp come great into their own. Thank you for joining with us at DotMCC. We hope we see you next month again. Gundi
