colourQ 226

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

I've been taking an online class for the last few days on how to use stencils on cards and I've learned a lot of new techniques.  I've been a little slow to incorporate some of these new details for my "homework" but I'll get there eventually.  For my colourQ card this week I used a stencil and some embossing paste.

Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride never looked so similar as they do here!  But I promise you that the sentiment is stamped (and die cut) from Pink Pirouette while the little flowers are accented with Blushing Bride.  The layout is from Unscripted Sketches which I thought was perfect for using some of the new things I learned about stencils and embossing paste in my class.

As always my teamies at colourQ have created some beautiful cards to inspire you with these colors.  I sure hope that you'll pop on over there to check them out!
