Funky Fossil "Abstract Flowers" stencilled card

One of the things I love about using stencils is that before I put them away, I clean them with a wet wipe over a piece of card.  The colour wiped from the stencil fills the gaps in the stencil, which in turn gives a lovely subtle pattern.  This is how I achieved the coloured background of this card.

Cleaning the Funky Fossil "Abstract Flowers" stencil after using it for this card, provided a beautiful coral shade of flowers.

I outlined the coloured sections using a gold shimmer Sakura Jelly Roll Pen.

The "To A Special Friend" sentiment is from a Hobby Art Ltd called "Greetings From Friends - CS158D" which I stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.


  1. the subtle colour and gold pen outline are a beautiful background for the stamped greeting, the black layer really makes the card pop

  2. Loving these Sam. Thank you for sharing.
