AAA Birthday #5 - Use a Stencil

And hot on the heels of the new AAA Cards Challenge come a new birthday card challenge at AAA Birthday.

And I'm loving using stencils at the moment so this theme is right up my street!

As soon as I saw this Polkadoodles Magical Grasses stencil I knew it would be perfect for this challenge and it sort of made its own way into my shopping basket. But apart from this use of it I know it will be a go to for me as I just love the idea of magical grasses and that top right part is like the most useful stencil as well!

So this was a card that made itself in minutes and I had so much fun blending and mixing the distress oxide inks. I finished it off by simply matting it onto dark purple card, adding some glitter spots and a birthday sentiment from Uniko.

Stamps: Uniko, Simply Said Birthday
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, cracked pistachio, twited citron, peacock feathers, picked rapberry, wilted violet, salty ocean; Versfine Clair, nocturne
Embellishments: Liquid Pearls, white opal; Glamour Dust, crystal
