I have fun using stencils. This card uses a plastic and a brass stencil. I wanted to use Wink of Stella on the sentiment but my fine little pen wouldn’t leave enough of a mark on the shiny embossing paste. I used a textured linen cream paper for the top layer. I rubbed pumice stone distress ink over the stencils and then pressed it onto the linen card stock. Love the ancient look of it. Then I used a brass stencil and shiny embossing paste to emboss the THANKS. I received the beautiful mat die cut in the mail and thought it made a perfect back ground for this. Since Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is glitter I wanted to use that goldish glittery piece for the other mat. I got that in the same box of goodies that I won.
