Hello Sunshine

Hi everyone.  I'm back with a card using a new stencil (Random Triangle Stencil (That's Crafty!) that I received from a dear friend for my birthday.  I sponged through the stencil with Distress Inks: Ripe Persimmon and Picked Raspberry (my favourite colour combo).  I thought the background was fun and summery looking ... perfect to add a couple of summertime drinks.

I stamped two drinks (Stampendous Fruity Drinks) in black and heat embossed with clear before watercolouring.  I fussy-cut them out and popped them up over the stenciled background.  To finish, I added a cute sentiment (Stampendous Spring Sentiments) to the bottom of my main panel.

Close-up ...
Since this is a new stencil, I'm sending this over to the NBUS Challenge #41.

What a fun and cool stenciled background, Loll! The cold summer drinks look so good especially when it's 38C degrees outside here! ;-)

This is really pretty, Loll, and I have always loved a pinkish and orangish color combo. You've made me look at that drink set before. Your watercoloring of them is a very refreshing look! A cute stencil to back them up. It's just fun all over!
