Make a Wish

MMMmmm, I wish I had more stencils ...

This is the first time I have used this new stencil because although I loved it when I bought it, I really didn't know what to do with it! 
I sponged distress inks over the stencil using three colours, using heavier inking in the centre and gradually fading out toward the edges to make an ombre effect.  I also wanted some texture in it because it was always going to be a simple card, therefore I 'dabbed' (instead of rubbing) to leave the sponge dotty-ness.

I like the tone on tone-ness of this card, and there is really more colour variation in the card than shows in the photo. 

Distress Inks: broken china, tumbled glass, peacock feathers.
Stencil: Kaisercraft
Sentiment stamp: Kaisercraft,  Ranger cobalt ink
ribbon & pearls from stash

What a beauty Carol - love the way you have shaded the stenciling and then added the darker toned sentiment

really pretty Carol. Have you tried making your own stencils. Some dies are prefect to make into stencils. I've been taking the Stencil class at StampNation and one day was about making your own. Love the darker sentiment.
