I am really on a roll today!! For these i used both of the stencils. (positive and negative in set!) and mixed alcohol, a few drops of calypso coral and a few more drops of frost white shimmer paint. Then I just spritzed it over the stencils onto white card stock. Rather than soaking in it seems to sit on top of the paper more like some sort of overlay! They have much more depth than i can capture with my limited camera skills!

A couple of more quick cards.... The first is one more sympathy. It is a stencil that is new to SU! and I love it!! So many possibilities. Concord crush on wisteria with a sliver of silver behind and a silver sentiment. Bad picture - it really doesn't look very silver.... and the whole thing looks kind've smoky. The butterflies are a case of Sandi McIver. I moved some things around, but it is so nice and cheerful!

Unfortunately, I have had a need for several sympathy cards this week. These are always difficult! But since I was so very pleased with the pink hello card I posted a few weeks ago and I had these scraps on my table, here they are again! Not entirely certain the green ribbon will stay on the top sympathy card... The last one is contraband MS hydrangea punch - but they are cute little flowers! So much of the SU! catalog is retiring, maybe we will get some more cute small flower punches!

This one is simple and pretty quick! It uses the flower garden embossing folder and glossy paper. Just a quick bit of trimming, mount on Lucky Limeade, add a touch of ribbon and some Pretty in Pink scallops to set off the pretty pink flowers. no sentiment yet - looking for an occasion! The inside sports matching flowers printed off my digital studio. How did we ever manage without that feature???

There have been bazillions of these done but this is the first I have managed to complete without throwing it in the trash!! ha Butterfingers drops, smears and stamps badly sometimes!! You know, some days it just doesn't work - but all was well today and I'm pretty pleased with it. I should make more while I'm on a roll! lol
