My first card uses the Pure Florals Chrysanthemum stencil in a way that has nothing to do with flowers. This came about as a bit of an accident as I was trying out a colour with the stencil on a scrap of paper and I had a light bulb moment.
I used circle masks under the stencil and inked up in two shades of purple. I added a sentiment strip and heat embossed the greeting from Birthday Sentiments in white.
Stencil: Uniko, Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum
Stamps: Uniko, Birthday Sentiments
Ink: Ranger distress, chipped sapphire & dusty concord; Versafine clear + WOW! Sparkling Snow embossing powder
My next card uses the Seeing Stars stencil which co-ordinates nicely with two Uniko stamp sets - Background Builders Seeing Stars & Reach For The Stars. I inked the stars in the same two distress colours as my first card and then overstamped them in the same colours.
A genrous helping of Wink of Stella added a bit of glitz and shimmer to the stars.
Stencil: Uniko, Seeing Stars
Stamps: Uniko, Background Builders Seeing Stars & Reach For The Stars
Inks: Ranger distress, chipped sapphire, dusty concord
Die: MFT Die-nmics, stitched basic edges
Wink of Stella, clear
Keeping with the purple shades my final card also uses the Seeing Stars stencil.
This time I used distress oxide inks and added in a little clash with some green. I die cut the starry panel and added a greeting from Birthday Sentiments.
Stamps: Uniko, Birthday Sentiments
Stencil: uniko, Seeing Stars
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, twisted citron, wilted violet; Memento, tuxedo black; Versafine clear + WOW sparkling snow embossing powder
Dies: Lil'inker, stitched mats long & skinny rectangles; Lawn fawn, Large stitched circle stackables

Love your twist with the first card, I do like a lightbulb moment! :)ReplyDelete
I really like the way you've used the circles to create a spotlight on different parts of the chrysanthemum! And those stars are just fab! xxReplyDelete

A perfect trio Jane. I love the neat trick with the Chrysanthemum where you've masked random circles of the image and I'm swooning at the use of not just the star stencil but the coordinating stamp set too. Beautiful colour combos and a brilliant showcase.ReplyDelete
