Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC46!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge -FTTC46!!! This week Betty Wright is our host. Betty is challenging us to *stenciling*.

Stenciling is really popular right now in card making. You can use your Spellbinder Templates, stencil a fluffy scalloped sky, or use other stencils either store bought or handmade to add some stenciling to your card this week. Here are a couple of links from SCS to give you a little more insight into stenciling. Tutorial 1 and Tutorial 2. We would love to see what you create!!!!

Here is my take on it......





















I used the gorgeous new A Year In Flowers Calendar Set 3. For the layout I used this weeks SFYTT Sketch.

The flower image was inked with Memento Black and colored with these Copic Markers - Holly, Sunflower and Gerber Daisy Collection.

For the stenciling I used this Flower Impressabilities. I adhered the template on both sides with some easy removeable tape and sponged it with Memento Desert Sand Ink. Very easy to do and the outcome is so pretty!!! I think I have to use this technique soon again :) !!!

Please make sure to check out Betty, Cindy, Dee, Kimberly and Makiko's take on this technique!!!

Have fun playing!!!
