With Love

I am back again today with a card that I made using one of the fabulous MFT stencils that Mona Pendleton has designed. This one is called Petal Patterns and will be linked below.    Lisa Henke and I had so much fun playing along in a challenge together the other day, we had to do it again.  This time she choose the sketch at Cardabilities.

 I had a lot of fun making this card.  First, I sponged on some distress inks in various colors, then, I laid down the the stencil and spackled some molding paste in random areas and let dry.  Last, I sprayed some water in my hand with a mini mister and slung it on the inked areas.  Since I used distress inks, the areas that I splattered water on, removed some of the ink and gave a really cool effect.



Do you see this pretty Hibiscus flower?  That is another one of Mona's pretty flower sets called Tropical Sensations.  I have a pretty hibiscus patio tree that has the reverse colors of this flower, the blooms are yellow with pink centers.  The blooms are open the majority of the day and then close in the evening, it has the most beautiful flowers.


SUPPLIES USED:

 This time Lisa choose the sketch at Cardabilities for us to use.


Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather
