Stencilling

The theme at "Less is More this week is stencilling. It has been on trend for a while now, with lots of innovative ways of using stencils being employed.
This is a card I made for some friends of mine, in fact it is a commission from another friend of mine and I have yet to make my own card for them. They are going to have a mantelpiece full of my cards as I've already made another for them from yet another mutual friend.
Here I used a part of a Memory Box stencil with Spun Sugar Distress ink applied with a sponge dauber.
The swirly thing is from a Sizzix die and the leaves from Wplus9. I believe that the sentiment mount is Tonic Studios.
This is very similar in vein, using the same stencil, plus Memory Box leaves and butterfly.
This week my hubby will be celebrating his 70th birthday and we are off to the races at Salisbury on Wednesday with our children and their partners. I hope the weather will be kind.
