Plant Smiles

Time for a new challenge theme at
and this time the theme is to use
stencils or masks...FUN!!

I have lots of stencils to work with
but chose this cute, small one from Memory Box
called Florina.
It was simple enough just by using some Distress Inks
and a sponge.

I first tried to 'frame it' but none of my frames seemed to fit 'just right'
so in the end I used an oval die to die cut it
and actually like the result.

I used an embossing folder that fit pretty good with the oval
and a sentiment from Elizabeth Crafts
stamped with Dew Drop ink Lulu Lavender.

Take a peek over at Back To Basics and Beyond
and join us with some stenciling of your own...
we would love to see your creations!

Your embossing makes a beautiful frame for this pretty stenciled oval! It's too easy to forget about the embossing folders with all the dies to choose from. Love these delicate colors!
