Hello friends!

Since it is summer, I am slowing down a tad with blogging and card-making.

I love ink-blending and stencils are best for this purpose.  Once I did that, I thought it would be cool to stamp small images in the larger openings of the stencil. I used Garden Silhouette for this because it has to be a detailed stamp.

And if that was not enough, I decided to add hand-stitching with gold strings !

Of course, the sentiment from Rustic Linen is SEW perfect!

LOVE the tone on tone stamping through the stencil. It's like finding an extra surprise on an already outstanding design. Also, that gold stitiching is so perfect, it looks like it was done on a machine. You have so many talents.

That stencil is wonderful. I love your choice of colors and adding the images within the large 'swirls' is brilliant!

This card is awesome! The blended colors came out very pretty and adding the small stamps in the larger opens looks amazing. I love the gold stitching but I'm not sure I would have the patients to do that, hmmmm might have to try it anyway LOL. Thank you for doing the Stencil series, it truly is helpful!
