Love you and stencilled heart


Quick second post. Decided to wait till the last minute and enter The Paper Players Challenge. Well actually I forgot, was getting ready to hit the sack and thought ohhhh I wanted to enter. So here is a quick card.

I love this stencil - pretty sure its a Simon Says one and I have used and reused it. It looks wonderful with blending which is what I did this time using a couple of different pinks and a light red in the Distress Inks. I have also made cards with gold embossing paste, clear embossing paste and opaque embossing paste with different colours added.
 I wanted it to look as though it is fading away on the outside and more intense inside so was very happy with the look. I did this straight onto the card base so 'one layer'. Finished off with a 'Technique Tuesday' love you die cut. This was cut from glossy cardstock where I have smooched in alcohol inks. Love the look of this effect and will find a way to use the negative as well as it would be a shame to throw it away.


I don't know why but I have ended up with a section on the heart that looks smudged near the 'l' yet the card is perfect. I looked at all three photos and this mark is there and all I can think of is maybe reflection. Sorry I don't have time or energy to take photos again, maybe tomorrow.

Left the card with no enamel dots or gems as I felt it looked perfect as it is especially as a CAS card.

Would like to enter this in







I  am not sure what the rules are when entering a challenge if there is no stamping on the card. Because I stencilled the heart and die cut the sentiment if I have entered your challenge and this is incorrect please let me know and I will remove from your challenge.

Thanks for coming to look and I hope you come again soon.
