My 2 cards today uses a Sweet Poppy Stencil coloured through with Pen Touch and Distress Pens. Left to dry and then stencilled with translucent paste. Carefully removed stencil and then covered , whilst wet with clear micro beads. Left them without having a " I'll see if it's dry" dab , overnight to fully dry.
** The card on the left has been distressed lightly with Vintage Photo DI, edged with a memento green and then matt and layered with some ribbon.
** the second card has a bit more technique. I cut a second piece of card with a 1" border all round. Put a small bit of double sided tape to hold the top layer to the bottom and then stamp with a Lavinia Stamp to cross both pieces of card. Took top piece off bottom and distressed around the edges. Used a score board to make a detail line around each piece .Matt and layered each piece onto black card. The stencilled piece is mounted using foam pads to lift. Ribbon knot to finish.
