I have all sorts of brass stencil that have built up over time. They include basic brass stencils, cutting, pricking, lace - the list goes on. So I thought it was time to start using some of them again.
My card today uses a small brass stencil that I embossed onto some white card with my Cuttlebug and tan mat. Then I rubbed through using Distress inks with the stencil still in place.
I rubbed Distress ink round the edge then sprayed all over with a fine misting bottle with water mixed with some mica powder. Unfortunately the mica has made it difficult to photograph but it does give a lovely shimmer to the image.
I mounted the image onto black card and then silver mira card. The blue embossed and the black card behind were odd pieces that were lying on my desk. I cut the right hand side of the black card with fancy scissors to indicate waves on the sea and stuck on a few real shells with Glossy Accents.
I would like to enter this card into the challenge on the Try it on Tuesday blog which this time is using stencils.
