Hello again! I’m popping in to show you what I created for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge. Challenge #373 was ‘Just Add Stencils’.

18118968_278305455972936_2634805162061928961_ninbetween lineI decided to use the brick wall mask template from the Pattern Party masks pack, and some untinted Embossing Paste on Whisper White card. I did add something a little extra to the embossing paste though…..Dazzling Diamonds! It’s so sparkly and I love how it turned out.

IMG_1975On a circle of Basic Black card, I stamped a sentiment from Hang Your Stocking, using Whisper White Craft Ink. Once dry, I used an Embossing Buddy to add a chalk effect. Around the edge, I used a Chalk Marker to add faux stitching. I stamped the holly and berry images on Whisper White, using Tranquil Tide and Cherry Cobbler, then fussy cut them out. On the card front, I layered a strip of Burlap Trim, then a few loops of Silver Metallic Thread, then the chalkboard circle. A few holly sprigs were adhered onto with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

IMG_1979The inside of the card and envelope were stamped with the holly images, and the card inner was stamped with a sentiment in Memento Black.

      It was so difficult to photograph! It took me at least 20 shots to get it sparkling enough! :D xx
