A New Stencil

The challenge over at CAS Stencil is to use a new Stencil!

Well this one couldn't be much newer as I only made it this morning and I haven't previously used the die to make a stencil fact I think it's the first time the die has been used.
It's from Memory Box  and I cut the stencil from a piece of vellum. I wanted to use embossing paste but my homemade pot had dried up a little too much and although I tried to reconstitute it, it wasn't playing ball. I managed to dig out an old pot of Poppy Stencil embossing paste, but that too was on its last legs, but it just about coped.  I sprinkled on some WOW embossing powder and heat set it. The joy of using vellum stencils for embossing paste means that there is no clean up afterwards... I just toss the lot into the bin. The palette knife is the only thing that needs a wipe. The foliage die is by Alexandra Renke, which I stacked, adding a deep green bottom layer which I offset slightly. I simply added a few tiny pearls to the berry sections of the die cut.
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.
Job Done!
The design actually used the sketch from Case this sketch but inverted!

  8. Did you hear there's a 12 word phrase you can tell your crush... that will trigger deep emotions of love and impulsive attractiveness to you buried inside his chest?

    That's because hidden in these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's impulse to love, treasure and protect you with all his heart...

    This impulse is so hardwired into a man's brain that it will drive him to work better than before to love and admire you.

    In fact, fueling this dominant impulse is so binding to getting the best possible relationship with your man that the moment you send your man one of the "Secret Signals"...

    ...You'll instantly notice him expose his soul and heart to you in a way he's never experienced before and he'll identify you as the one and only woman in the world who has ever truly interested him.
