Stenciled Sentiment

Created for 2 challenges this week … the Modsquad & Double D, http://modsquadchallenge.com/stenciled-background-tag-or-card/ and Double D challenges Focus on the Sentiment https://daranddiane.blogspot.com/ . I ended up with 2 cards but will do a separate post for the other one.

From one of my paper pads I chose this pink piece and using a stencil from KaiserCraft called Ornaments and some Nuvo Glimmer paste in Plum Spinel I stenciled out the words. The glittery finish doesn’t show in the photo but it has a lot of glitter to it. I added the Creative Expressions die cut dove on top and because I am I couldn’t get the pink piece adhered straight to the card base I ended up with some white showing on the fold side. Hid that with a tiny strip of washi tape. I still like the result but wish the tape wasn’t there.

  1. I actually like the washi tape, as it looks like another layer of paper and adds some dimension and offset to your card front. Great work on this. Do you like working with the glimmer paste?

    1. Glad you like it. To answer your question, I find glimmer paste is easy to work with and with a strong colour background often changes colour a bit to make it interesting. The issue I and I’ve learned others, have with it, is the drying out of the product and its an expensive item to have when it drys out so quickly. I looked for fixes but no one had any so I tried adding some water to the worst pot and managed to get it back to a decent consistency which still works. I’m not sure that is the correct solution but it worked for me. I probably won’t purchase any more though.
