Stenciled Day 3

Hi everyone!

I loved class earlier today! They encouraged us to play with embossing paste, which I really enjoy doing! I had to go to work shortly after I read the lessons and watched the amazing videos, but came home and got right to work with my homework.

I hope you all know how talented Debby Hughes is. If you don't, you need to visit her blog because it will not only inspire you, it will totally blow you away! She has such a beautiful style and I was, once again, drawn to one of her cards in class today.

Here's my take on her card and lesson:


I sprayed my watercolor panel (mostly in the lower left corner) with Mister Huey's Color Mist in Dewey.

I used a stencil from Memory Box called Texture Mesh with some Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste. The die-cut leaves are from Sizzix and the die-cut butterfly is also from Memory Box - it's their Vivienne Butterfly Die.

I added a couple of matching enamel dots and white pearls, along with a Hero Arts sentiment.

Can't wait for our 4th and final lesson tomorrow - it's such an awesome class!

Thanks so much for stopping by! ♥
