30th January 2012

Well, here I am again, two days latter with another challenge, am I doing well or not ? lol I have some samples to make now so I may be a bit slow on the challenge front for a while but I hope to be able to show them when allowed.
 I had a very lazy day yesterday, I was going to do so much but ended up reading and watching TV all day then feeling guilty. I don't intend repeating that today so I must get my skates on.
This card I would like to enter for Crafty Ann's challenge "What's new pussycat". The stencil that I have used I have had for a few months but I have never used it. Unfortunately, as usual, the lovely sparkle and colour of the glitter don't show up in the photograph even with scanning.

I have used plain black card for the base. For the image I have used a Dreamweaver stencil, stencilling paste and Pee Wee glitters onto black card. I have matted and layered with Mauve card to pick out the colour of  the fuchsia and  matted that onto silver card. The sentiment is a stamp that I have had for ages and can't remember the designer. I have stamped and embossed it with mauve embossing powder and matted and layered with mauve and silver card. The image and the sentiment have been mounted using foam pads and I have finished the card with a ribbon from my stash.


  1. This is absolutely lovely, Trish. You make some beautiful cards with stencils.

  3. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my latest LOTV card. I was sooooo lucky to win twelve of their stamps recently. It will take me a while to try them all out. Your fuchsia card is beautiful, they are my Mum's favourite flowers. Lovely sentiment too. I have never heard of stencilling paste so I will go and find out what that is now. Marie x
