Swirls and Curls


At our local art supply store, I found this stencil and I just had to have it. I went into the store to return a defective pen and came out with the replacement plus the stencil. I decided to try using the Nuvo Glimmer paste for my first try and this is the result. It was so striking that at first I wasn’t sure how to use it. In the end I used a scrap silver frame piece around it and I heat embossed the GKD sentiment adhered it in the middle and edged it in a bit more silver. The corners of my frame looked messy so I covered them with some tiny die cuts in a white sparkle and then added the dove which is on a wobbly so it stands out quite a bit. I’m looking forward to using this stencil with inks on my next try. This fits the basic challenge at Double Trouble but my next card will fit both the basic and the twisted parts of the challenge.

  1. Thanks Lisa – I forgot I had the wobblers and when I found them in my drawer a light went off in my head. Glad ;you like this.


  2. Johanna, this is beautiful. I love that you put the dove on a wobble, too. Those make things so much fun! Glad you got such a wonderful new stencil, as well. Have fun trying all sorts of things with it.
