Stenciled Red Flowers.....


I have had a fun day crafting today.
It has been raining all day so it was the only thing to do!
This is today's card inspired by a few challenges.
I started by masking off the vertical strip and water colouring with 
Lindy's magical powers and mixing them with water.
There's a hint of sparkle in them and they graduated really well.
I popped on the flower stencil and mixed several colours of the Lindy's powders 
with embossing paste.
After it was dry I hi-lighted the edges with red and gold mica powders.
I stamped the vertical strip with the square's in grey and gold.
I finished off with the die cut and stamped sentiments.
I really enjoyed playing with techniques today and it's still raining!
Thank you for stopping by...
