Virginia's Stencil Sunday #5

Hello friends!
Today is my 5th installment of Stencil Sunday!
I am happy to share a simple stenciled card from Poppy Bloom Stencil

thank you-001

This stencil is super easy to work with as the composition of the poppy pretty much covers the entire card front. I decided to add extra text from the sentiment in this stamp set.

After applying ink over the stencil, I simply left the stencil on paper.  I then stamped the sentiment over each section with the same color of the petals and leaves.

For the final finishes, I popped up the sentiment and added some silver strings underneath.
The text and sentiment are from Build-a-Flower Hibiscus set (see links below).

 This has been a super busy weekend for me as I spent two fulls days in our largest Crafting event in my area. I taught a workshop and met a lot of people....My heart is full and happy.
I definitely can use some down time.

You've given this poppy even more style and flair with the sentiment overlay, Virginia! Simple AND stunning! Wish I could have attended the crafting event; meeting you in real life would be a dream come true. Someday...

Love the added text! Looks fabulous!
Glad you had so much fun at the event... now it's time to relax a bit!

Hopefully, you can relax after the big event. I saw the photos and it appeared you were very popular and had a good time.
This card looks amazing love the text inside the stencilled flower. So effective and eye-catching. Of course, it's perfectly and subtley embellished with "Virginia touches".

Harriet said...

Brilliant idea to add your sentiment as you did. I think that touch makes this stencil very interesting.

I think you were a star at the Craft event...put your feet up and bask in your achievement.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your Crafting Event, Virginia! I'm sure it was a thrill for others to meet you :)
This is such a beautiful card! I'm so impressed with the effects of your stamped sentiment on the stenciled petals and feminine and lovely, and your CAS design is perfect!
Get some rest certainly deserve it!

Love how you combined the stenciled words into the petals of the flowers. Unusual, but really neat!
