Going in Circles

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

For my card, I used an alcohol ink lift background and added 
stenciling in a similar color along one side and the opposite corner.

I've stamped a simple image to my background and added some glitter to the flower.

The card base is embossed with the Subtle Texture Embossing Folder. 
The photo doesn't seem to pick that up.

A twofer....

This time I did some light handed stenciling and finished the card with some die cuts
from my stash and a little stamped hello.

Two lovely cards, Bonnie! Especially the first one in the soft shades of blue with the hints of brown. Beautiful use of the alcohol ink lift technique!

Two beautiful cards Bonnie and I love the glittery silhouette flower over the ink lifted background with that wonderful stencilling too, and then more of that pretty soft stencilling, and love the colour combo, and the added black flower stem and gold multi circle look so lovely over the top. x

Two beautiful cards Bonnie, love your Alcohol lift the colours are so beautifully soft and perfect for your delicate silhouette. The second card has such pretty stenciling ♥

Bobby said...

These are just fantastic, Bonnie. I love alcohol backgrounds so I'd hesitate to stenci over one but it looks wonderful. I love how the stenciling goes outside the mat on the other one. Two beauties for sure. Thanks for sharing them with us at The Flower Challenge.

Both cards are stunning, Bonnie! I especially love the background of the first card. The combination of the alcohol ink lift background and the stenciling created a gorgeous visual texture and dreamy colors!

Gorgeous cards Bonnie, what a fabulous lift technique too! TFS the link, transferring the background to cardstock would make it so much easier to stamp etc! Love the colours you've used too, Cathy x

Oh wow! Those stenciled circles are so subtle, but the panels are just that much prettier with them added, Bonnie! What a great way to add them to your cards - love the colors!
Thanks so much for playing cards with us at The Flower Challenge! x

Both of these are absolutely BEAUTIFUL Bonnie! I'm especially loving the background of the 1st card and how it pops against all the white and then the simple silhouette die cut. Lovely, lovely cards my friend!! Hugs. :0)

Leslie Miller said...

I absolutely love both cards, Bonnie! The subtle backgrounds are so pretty, and I can see some of the stenciling on the card base of the second card. Love your dies, colors, designs on both!

Nstiz said...

Those are some spectacular backgrounds, Bonnie! Love the glitter you added to the flower on the first card and love the design of the second one. Thank you too for the link in your post. Two fabulous cards!

Stef Perry said...

Bonnie, what beautiful backgrounds you created and both ended up on gorgeous cards! The first with the alcohol ink lift technique yielded a delightfully subtle background with circles behind the black die cut flowers. Love it! So glad you shared with us at The Flower Challenge!

These are fantastic. I love the stenciling in those soft colors and the stamp on the first card is beautiful. Adding the glitter looks elegant. Great design on the second card with that wonderful stencil.

Oh! Two lovely cards !! The first is my favorite. Your background looks so amazing. In the second card, I love how you moved the template pattern out of the frame. Thank you for sharing these lovely cards with us.
