What???? Another post so soon? I haven't even been to bed since my last one!!! Ha. I will be sorry in the morning when a little 3 year old is ready to get up and I am not!!! But I threw caution to the wind and tried out this MFP Tutorial Time Challenge of stenciling with colored pencils. They included a wonderful tutorial which I took a few liberties with, but I think my entry will still qualify.
I was so excited to get to use this stencil I had won from ArtistCellar. It's a portion of the Flower Garden stencil in Tam's Whimsy Series by Tamara Laporte. LOVE this set!!! (Thanks, Tam and ArtistCellar!!!!)
I wanted to keep this card fairly simple, but I did dress up the flowers just a tiny bit. I used a sequin on the daisy-ish one and a dot of gold gel pen on the stamens of the other flower.
The hardest part of this card was finding my edge punch!!! How can I lose something that big???? I found it, finally. It's a Martha Stewart one that hubby found on clearance and bought for me as a surprise. I hardly ever use it (and feel terribly guilty because I don't!), but this gave me a good excuse! Yay!!!
Okay, that's all. As always, thank you so much for stopping in. I appreciate your comments and emails.....which I will answer in the morning...which is when all of you will be reading this anyway! :)
Have a lovely rest of the week!!
Thank you for the honor of entering this card in the following challenge:
