More stenciled cards...

Today I chose to just sit and play. I haven't done this in ages...just creating for fun, not for work, while listening to audios on things I've been wanting to learn about myself. Feels so good to take time for me and just let out my creativity. Does that make sense?

The Modern Stencils Collection by Papertrey Ink was used for the backgrounds with the same technique I shared in my post over at Scrapbook Expo. The stamps I've used are Bitty Bouquets and Big Birthday Wishes.

On this one, I used Aqua Mist ink in the background with Tropical Teal ink on the "Enjoy". The stencil looks great in a lighter color than your focal point, but in the same color family.

What are you doing today? I hope you have an opportunity to take time for you and get into your happy place! xo We all need that so much, and that's what cardmaking does for me.

These cards are very striking, Danielle! I'm eager for my stencils to arrive so I can "blend" away and CASE your cards. Hope all is well with you. We all need some "me" time every so often.

I am so inspired by these beautiful designs. Danielle, where is the best source to get these beautiful white irridescent sequins? They really add such a special touch.
Thanks!

Denise, they are clear sequins by PrettyPinkPosh.com! I love them and use them so much. They add a bit of sparkle, without overdoing the design! Thanks!
