DIY Chevron Mask

This card was inspired by Day 3 of the online Stencilling course I enrolled in.
It called for a chevron mask, which I didn't have, so I went about making one for myself.
I used my Silhouette Portrait, to draw it and cut it from acetate so that it can be used over and over.
To begin with I spritzed a piece of card with a goldish shimmer and then when dry applied some embossing paste through my home-made mask. Whilst still wet I tapped a little gold Perfect pearls over it.
The leaves from Clearly Besotted were stamped onto vellum and embossed with WOW Sea foam white EP and die-cut.
The butterfly is from Memory Box and painted with a little white Perfect pearls powder mixed with water.The sentiment is from Paper Smooches embossed in gold and cut out with a slightly extended Framelit die. A few pearl and it was done. 
I quite like it but it took me quite a while to execute!

CAS on Sunday - Lovey Dovey (as this is a Wedding/Engagement card)
Muse - The foliage, the central  focus element and the use of chevrons are in line with the Muse this week!

  2. awesome card! I loved taking the class but haven't had time to put it into practice yet. Was worried about cutting acetate on my cameo but I guess it works fine so will give it a go!
