Playing with Stencils

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  I decided to get crafty today by using my stencils and sparkle medium from Imagination Crafts.  I do love using sparkle medium as it gives an instant wow to your projects with the lovely sparkle.

Here is one of the cards I made using the Alium and honeycomb stencils together with sparkle medium.  Now you might need your sunglasses on as it is quite bright.

I used the rose shimmer and golden pine sparkle medium to do the alium.  Once dry I used distress ink and the honeycomb stencil to add some interest to the topper.  I used orange and black cardstock for the matting and the background paper is from Papermania.  Some ribbon, a dazzler, sentiment, gems and a parchment glittered butterfly finished the card.  I also added a little bee metal charm near the bow.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I love reading all your comments and thank you for your support and kind words.
