Wonderful You....

I have been having fun with a stencil and Lindy Powders.....
This is my card.....
I sprinkled Lindy magicals over the stencil and lightly sprayed with water,
popping off the stencil quickly to avoid seepage....
When it was dry I popped the stencil back on and blended the stems in green ink.
I tried several times to use the powders for the stems but the seepage was horrendous!
I finished off with die cutting the sentiment, the squares and the flower bud.
AAA Card challenge and Uniko are friendship which helped me choose the sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by.

Challenges I would love to enter.....
Uniko - It's so much more friendly with two and I have gone with the 'Friend' theme ...

Beautiful Mac, I always have trouble with stencils, powders and water with the seepage, may have to try your way of quickly removing it. My LIndy's are already diluted so will see how they do...hugs.x

In response to your question, the card I made had the flowers printed directly onto my card stock due to the typewriting outside the flower, but as a rule I always fussy cut. xx

Marina said...

This looks wonderful - I haven't had any success with very wet mediums and stencils, so I admire the technique.

This is a beautiful design Mac! Gorgeous and sparkly flower (I LOVE pink!).
Great idea to sponge the thin stems and leaves. Love the framing around the flower and the placement of your die-cut sentiment. Very creative! xx

I love how you used the die cuts as an accent to the stencilling. Beautiful colours.

I love this card, Mac! It's so soft and pretty with a hint of punch! The Magicals color is amazing and all the design elements are fantastic - frames of the flower, the bud die-cut, the big black "you" sentiment at the bottom, and the layered vertical die-cut sentiment! Hideko xx

Julia Aston said...

I've never seen a square spotlight - you are so very clever Mac! Your stenciled flowers are beautiful in their lovely watery color!

Jane said...

Oh how lovely! Sweet peas are one of my favourite flowers and your pink no outline blooms are gorgeous. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards and Uniko.

Lindsey said...

A lovely serene card Mac. I do like the soft edges you've achieved - it gives the flowers a wonderful effect and the framing of the 1 bloom is a great touch x

Marcia HIll said...

WOW...this is one GORGEOUS card Mac!! I never even thought of using Magicals through a stencil, but now you've got me intrigued and I think I need to try it! LOVE how you used the die cuts over your flower and the black and white sentiment die cuts too! Truly a Magical card Mac!! :0)
