AAA Birthday Challenge #21 - A Stencilled Background

It's time for the first 2021 challenge at AAA Birthday.

I chose some cool wintery colours for my card and used the awesome Polkadoodles Park Life Stencil to ink up a background.

I then die cut a scalloped frame and used the gorgeous digi Winnie May Your Wishes Come True coloured and hand cut as my focal image. I added some sparkly gems to the flower centres in her hair.

Stamps: Polkadoodles digi, Winnie May Your Wishes Come True
Stencil: Polkadoodles, Park Life
Dies: Polkadoodles, Tags; Time For Tea Designs, Smile Scalloped Frame
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, tumbled glass, speckled egg, pumice stone, cracked pistachio; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Pens: Copic, E0000, E000, E00, E21, E40, G02, YG09, BG0000, BG23, BG32, BG34, BG93, R20; Wink of Stella clear
Embellishments: Mei flower gems

The talented ladies at AAA Birthday have lots more inspiration for you, as does our Guest Designer Melanie. Find it all HERE.

I'm wondering how you will stencil up a background for your card. Can't wait to see!

Thanks for stopping by. Stay safe and keep crafting in 2021!
