Bold Stencil Background Lots of Love


I made this top panel a while ago and didn't really like it because I thought I was too heavy handed with the inks through the stencil, so I set it aside.  After a while I decided to go ahead and use it, just to color the flowers more boldly than I had some of the other cards I made that day.  I actually like the way it turned out.  Isn't it funny when you think you've messed up something, if you set it aside and come back another day, you see possibilities!  

Supplies used:  Altenew's "Wild Hibiscus", Archival ink, Tim Holtz stencil and Distress Oxide inks, Zig Clean Color markers, checked washi tape, white embossing powder, Wink of Stella, and Nuvo Glitter drops.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
