Big Flower with Stenciled Background

Do you know the Make It Monday feature on the PTI blog?  This week I loved Betsy Veldman's stenciled ombre background technique plus I had ordered PTI's first stencils and wanted to try one of them out.






Stamps: Stampendous (flower), PTI (sentiment)
Other: stencil (PTI), Faber Castell Polychromos, Marvy ink pads


I used two different colors of Marvy ink pads. It does require some time and patience to achieve a nice smooth ombre background but I like how it came out. Then I used one of the stencils in the 3-pack. The flower was stamped and colored with Polychromos (lots of layering and shading. A gold embossed sentiment on a strip of vellum finished the panel that is mounted on a 5x7 card. I like the graphic pattern paired with the flower. 

I am sending this card to the following 
Challenges (as always, click on the links to see the fabulous cards of the DT and in the gallery):






The stencil and the flower are my "Never Before Used Stuf"

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)















I appreciate your visits and comments and wish a wonderful week!

Hugs,
Susanne
