A Note of Thanks - Playing with Stencil

Hi everyone! :) It's been a busy busy week. There's a lot of stuff coming up in September so I hope you will subscribe to my blog to be one of the firsts to know when there's a new post.

 Anyways, I'm glad that I've sorted plenty of stuff out and now I'm here to share with you a new card!

This is a new colour combination that I'm trying out for myself. Basically, I used a stencil and dab some distress colours with the blending tool. I, then, decided that I need something to ground the background. So, I added some Versamark ink and made gold embossed strips at the top and bottom of the card. Popped the whole thing on a card base and there you go :D 

I hope you like it!
