Today I wanted to show you a card that I used the Liquitex modeling paste and one of "The Crafters Workshop" stencils to create the background. I have been using this technique on frames but it is a wonderful look on cards too. I used glossy card stock and shaded the background with Distress Ink before applying the modeling paste. It is an easy technique. Place, or tape the stencil, over the card stock and spread the modeling paste over the stencil, making sure all the design is covered. On this card I scrapped the paste even with the top of the stencil, but you can leave it uneven, if you want. I used the Blending Tool and sponged on more Distress Ink over the dried paste.
I have a very sweet blogging friend, Rita, who sent me a box of "goodies" I have been anxious to use. I used the purple flowers which are placed above the large flower, from her, and also one of the gorgeous ribbons she sent. She has a fabulous blog I'm sure you will want to visit. Thank you Rita for the fun things you sent.
The pretty corner on this card was die cut using the Heartfelt Creations "Decorative Blossom Corner". I pulled the large purple flower from a stash of flowers I previously made. The little white roses were created with the MFT Royal Rolled Rose. The pretty flourish is the Heartfelt Creations "Bella Rose" die. There are some Cheery Lynn "Wreath Strip" pieces tucked in this arrangement. Before I took the second, close up picture, I added a few of the small flowers from the Cheery Lynn BAF#3 Embellishments" die.
