Stenciled Tree

Hello my crafting friends, good to have you back here with me today, I hope you are all well and looking forward to your Bank Holiday weekend. I am off for a week, Hooray!!! Though I wont have much time for crafting as it is MIL funeral soon and with Family down no doubt time will be spent with them, so apologies if I am absent next week.

Now as we all know today is Friday so that means 'Oldies Friday', now I have searched through my files to find this one lol! I don't think I have ever showed it on my blog as I was not pleased with it!!!

I started with my base card which was a sheet of A4 card  folded in half, sorry cannot remember what colour or who the supplier of the card was, in the center of this I matted and layered with embossed card, (not very straight either lol!) Green card & Kraft card. On some White card I stenciled my Tree and fallen leaves then over the top I lay another stencil and used my Versamark Ink Pad over the top, removed the stencil then heat embossed with Clear embossing powder, this did leave a nice shine but not visible in this photo.

For the sentiment I added this onto a tag in the bottom right corner, some self adhesive pearls finished the card.

Items used (That I remember lol!)

White card
Green Linen Card
Kraft Card
Sweet Poppies Stencils - Tree & Diamond Grid
Justrite Large Fancy Sentiments
Papermania Embossing Powder Clear
Tim Holtz Distress Inks Vintage Photo, Fired Brick

There was an embossing folder used but cannot remember which one!

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
