It occurred to me that I've never tried running a stencil through my Cuttlebug, so I gave it a try. The results made my artist mom up pick the panel (not yet made into a card) and say, "Oh, pretty!"
Here's the card.
Sadly, the photos don't really capture the three-dimensional effect, but it's lovely in real life. I inked the piece with Tim Holtz distress inks and the inking tool. The rhinestones are Swarovski crystals that have been in my stash for over a decade. They were just the right blueish purple for the card. How awesome when that happens!
It's also awesome to realize that an old supply (stencils) can be used in a new (well, new-to-me) way.
What is your favorite "new" way to use an old supply?
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
