Flower Collage

Happy Saturday and time to play.
Meet today's card.  Just a fun combination of stencilling and stamping.

I like the look of a nice crisp, white border so I began by masking off my card front with painter's tape.  I laid down the lattice mini stencil and using some Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink, I covered my card front.  I removed that stencil then laid down the flower mini stencil from the same set over that and using some Broken China Distress Oxide ink, I stencilled again.  
(I did a TLC Challenge a few weeks ago over at Splitcoast stampers about stencilling over a stencil.
You can check out my other card here.)
Next, I inked up the Clover Silhouette inside my Misti with black ink then clear heat embossed it to help make it pop.  I did the same thing with the sentiment.
To help further define my card front, I stamped some mixed media element on the edges and inked around the edges with Distress ink.
I removed the painter's tape and mounted my piece onto a blue cardstock front.


Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look!

This is beautiful Karen and I love the masking which gives it a lovely crisp and elegant look, and all the stencilling has enhanced the background beautifully, and the pretty silhouette flowers finish it perfectly. Hope you are having a good weekend. x
