Stenciled Day 3 - Elegant Bird

Hi Friends,
Today's post is inspired by Day 3 of the On Line Stencilled classes.  I just loved the stencilled techniques by Debby Hughes today.  Debby's stunning card was so elegant and beautiful, just gorgeous I had to give it a go. I cut my own templates using dies in my stash and applied the embossing paste on the bird and the mat.  Both are coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used some shimmer ink and water on the mat for the background effect, embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and finished off with some crystals and a pearl. Love how it turned out, I was so inspired by these Stenciled classes you will be seeing a bit more of the techniques we learnt soon.

Stamps: S/U's Perfectly Preserved
Card and Papers: Whisper White, Vellum
Ink: Tim Holtz Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink, Shabby Shutters Distress Ink,

  1. Wow! You have done a great job with that embossing paste! Love the vellum leaves to! One of your cards a while back got me interested in stenciling. It had birds on it too! Thanks for even more inspiration!

  2. You have certainly learned a lot from those classes. This is so nicely done. I have oodles of stencils. You have inspired me to get them out.


Thank you for your lovely comments.
