New Honeycomb Stencil


I wanted to stop by to share some cards that I have created with a new stencil that is now available in my Folksy shop.  The soft honeycomb is pretty and versatile....I have been struggling to put it down :)

Here is what I have made:

I inked through the stencil with distress oxides to create a fade towards the centre and added a sweet bee and sentiment from Reverse Confetti.  I shall link this card up at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Ombre and Simon's Wednesday Challenge where we are being asked to add a sentiment....I am partial to a pun :)

Here, I inked through the stencil with a combination of reds and die cut a large heart with a smaller heart and sentiment popped over it.  A very simple valentine's card.

Finally I added Imagination Crafts sparkle paste over the stencil in golds and bronze to create a variegated effect.  I cut a portion of it out and popped up over a piece of kraft card on which I had embossed a bee stamp (from Inkadinkadoo, I think).  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp....I simple die cut and added a second 'e' to create the pun :)  I shall link this card up at Time Out as I think the sentiment really works well with the current inspired by words challenge:

I think the stencil works perfectly for grungy, mixed media or CAS cards so I hope you give it a go and check out my range of stencils in my Folksy shop.

Thanks for stopping by!
