Good morning all.
A much needed visit to the beautician yesterday for some waxing and polishing - my beautician has been travelling in Thailand, Laos and Vietnam for 5 weeks so it's been a while!!
After seeing the lovely Becca's stencilled background here I had to give the technique a try. Here is the result:
I inked the die cut piece with DI inks in mustard seed, spiced marmalade and picked raspberry then using a stencil from Splodgeaway I inked over with black soot. Stitched dies are from Spellbinders. Stamp is from Indigo Blu and was a magazine freebie, stamped with black versafine then overstamped with a big and juicy sunset ink pad. Sending die is from Simon says Stamp cut once from waste card and once from the background and layered up. Sentiment is from STAMPlorations. Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
