Stenciling and Fifth Avenue Floral

Here's another card for the 


I used another stencil that my friend Loll cut for me, 
sponging Antique Linen Distress ink through the stencil for the background.

The rose was in the UFO (UnFinished Object) box.
It had been stamped and embossed on Shimmery White paper
and colored by dropping re-inker onto the wet flower.






Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

Somehow my brain read this "and colored by dropping re-inker onto the wet flower" as and colored by dropping wet reinker on the FLOOR.

Well, now there is a technique I can really get behind! Dropping things on the floor! But alas, it sounds like you expect far more artistic things of me.

It's really quite a stunning card. And no floors were harmed in the making of it!
