Best Wishes

Hi everyone. Happy Sunday and happy Easter. We celebrated with the family and now that everyone is full and taking nap, I decided to do a quick post.

This week I received my i {heart} papers goodies and included in my order are Avery Elle Storybook stamps & dies set. This set has such a whimsical feeling to it that i just have to get it. :)

And, when I saw Taheerah's Cure For The Monday Blues challenge #13, I found the perfect inspiration for my card. And, double whammy, I get to enter this card for Simon Says Stamp animal antics challenge.


However, instead of going all neon, I went for softer hues.

For the background, I made my own stencil. I use my Silhouette to cut a sheet of acetate with background pattern. Then, once that done I used my new Mini Ink Blending Tool to fill in the colors. I really refer this smaller blending tool as I can have more control over the area I am coloring.

You couldn't quite see it in the pictures, but I also added Wink of Stella glitter in clear on the circles, so there's beautiful shimmer on this card.

Hope you all have beautiful Sunday. Cheers....
