I am back again :D And, this time I am sharing another stenciled card today. Stencils are SO in trend right now and there are so many different options of using them. The Pinterest board seems to be full of different types of stenciled card and projects and I was really inspired by Jennifer McGuire's recent post on using stencil embossing paste and embossing powders to create a glittered background. This is such a quick and easy way to make an ornate background for the cards. I really loved it a lot and this is my first try doing it. It definitely needs a lot of improvement but I just wanted to share my first trial here :)
So, here's a look :
Since, I wanted to keep the background as my main focus,I have limited my embellishing to just that one flower and a few pearls and of course the glittered strip bordering the stenciled background and the black cardstock. I have also stamped and embossed my sentiment using silver embossing powder. The flower is handmade using punches and I have also distressed the embossed piece with Scattered Straw and Antique Linen Distress inks to co-ordinate with the golden embossing powder!
