Simon Says Stamp Rose Bouquet Stencil

Hi all :-) It's almost the weekend!! Do you have any plans?  I will be helping out at the Gozo SPCA book sale and then going out for a lovely family Sunday lunch :-) If you're in Gozo please pop by the SPCA centre to say hi and maybe buy a few books ;-) 

I  think this gorgeous XL Rose Bouquet Stencil  from the latest 'Born To Sparkle release is my all time fave stencil! It's just so pretty!


I used a Repositional Spray Adhesive to make sure that the stencil stayed in place and post-it note tape to mask areas between colors. For the flowers I used Spiced Marmalade and Twisted Citon Distress Oxide Ink for the leaves. With the stencil still in place I added White Embossing paste and a sprinkling of Prisma Glitter on the flowers and some stamped script on the leaves. 
I added some Star Dust Stickles to the black dots and finished with a Pinkfresh Studio Mini Tags with Fillable Words sentiment

Tim Holtz Feathered Friends



Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week the theme is

Things With Wings 

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $25 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz  on the challenge blog post!

Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest,  Simona and the DT have made :-)

My friend is an avid birdwatcher so I made this circular card, using a Tim Holtz Feathered Friends Die Set, especially for her.



For the background I splattered some Distress Resist and when this was dry I spritzed Faded Jeans and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. To add more interest I used a Solid Grid Background Cling Stamp and Speckled Egg Oxide Ink.
I used a Funky Festive Die set to make the nest and added some Wildflower greenery. I finished with an Alphanumeric sentiment and a little butterfly for the 'gift' ;-/ poor butterfly!



Thanks for looking :-)
