Stylish Stencil

 Morning all.  It's time for a new challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenge. We would like to see your 'Stencilled' projects please. I love stencils.  I've been looking forward to this one. I could used my favourite stencil from Funky Fossil.


This is my favourite stencil and, right now, I absolutely hate her.  I had such a brilliant idea for this card.  My idea was to use gold foil on a black background. A 'Goldfinger' type approach.  It was going to look stunning.  Well, in my head it did.  I spent an entire weekend trying to get an even finish to my foiling.  There are several sheets of black cardstock lounging in the bin as a testament to my determination.  In the end I fished out a piece of teal cardstock and stencilled her in black.  I'm glad I did in the end.  I'm much happier with the result. I stamped my sentiment and added some obsidian gems and that's that.

Please pop over and see the fabulous inspiration from the design team.  Then you can join in the fun.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x

  5. WOW - I love this stencil! It's so retro and well designed! I just started looking at Funky Fossil recently and they have wonderful stencil images! You made some great design choices by keeping this CAS and letting that gorgeous image shine with a beautiful aqua card stock! I LOVE this card! Take care!

  8. What a wonderfully chic and style mid-century inspired design. This instantly calls to mind one of my all-time favourite TV series, Mad Men.
