Hugs & Kisses and Birthday Wishes

I posted a card a week ago using the same stencil but this time I have used blues and greens and a bit of yellow.   This background was made with the leaf stencil from Winnie and Walter in different colours from the distress Inks range.

This card is 5.5" x 5.5". I used an opaque paste and
inks to colour up the paste.

As I moved the colours around the softer green and blue do tend to disappear
but are there if you look. There are also a few little speckles of bronze glitter
that escaped last night from their home and have come to rest on my card.

I love how the colours turned out and the look of the card. I decided to also use
the Winnie & Walter 'Hugs' die in silver. I layered up a couple of times then decided
to use dimensional tape to hold in place as the glue just wasn't grabbing.

I scattered around a few sequins in the same colours and thats it. so simple. 
Hardest thing for me is stopping and not ending up with 50 backgrounds with the leaf
stencil in all different colour mixes. 

Of course I made a few more, will share those later.


Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
