Stencil and Prima Flowers

Ok, here's another card that doesn't look like I made it...

but I did.


(stamp:Newton's Nook Fanciful Florals  other:Heidi Swapp Star Stencil,Prima Flowers,Want2Scrap rhinestones, Tim Holtz Distress Inks)

I was motivated to stencil~

& to create something charming.

I added prima flowers my sister passed on to me~isn't she the BEST?!!

I figured they'd add the charm factor. ;)

Initially I was looking for my splatter stencil, but ever since I organized my craft supplies, I've misplaced it. :)

Oy, the irony.

If I find it, I'll try the stencil technique again.

I tried to soften the star image by sponging it once with blue distress ink,
then sliding it over and sponging with purple.

I added water drops to soften the area up.

Now to look for the stencil I wanted to use....I KNOW I saw it somewhere...
