Happy to be guesting over at Crazy 4 Challenges this month! This weeks' challenge is all about texture!
I created texture on my card with some Thermoweb Champagne Mist Metallix Deco Foil Gel. I used the Knit Stitch Cover Plate from A Jillian Vance Design and cut a panel out of some very thin cardboard to create a stencil. It will last for a few uses I'm sure! One of my favorite purchases recently was a Thermoweb Stencil Pal. I use a spatula to apply the Gel and then drag the Stencil Pal over the top and it smooths it out and takes off the extra. Then I can just scrape the extra back into the jar and my stencil is good for another go.
Then I took the opportunity to use my first monthly kit I received from Stamps of Life, the Pinecone sets are AWESOME! I used just the die set here, but I signed up for the Stamp/Die Club and so far I have no regrets... love these! This Season's Greeting phrase die along with the background is in the set....
As well as the pinecones and pine needles. There are also berry dies, but I decided to use up some of my embellishments instead!
Hope you'll come on over to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and play along with us this week!
Thanks for stopping and be sure to come back soon!
