Purple and Pink card

Hi friends, stopping by to share another
'Less is More' challenge card. The 
theme is 'Use a Stencil' this week.
See the usual ps. bit for a piglet story
 too!
 
 
For my second card I used my TCW 
stencil and pinched some paste my
OH had made. I mixed a bit of alcohol
ink with it and pasted it on the stencil.


I then used a few drops of  3 colours of
alcohol inks on top of the paste. When
 that was dry I sprayed some silver
 ink over it all.


I edged the topper with a silver pen,
then added a stamped sentiment and
 a few sequins. I stamped the butterfly,
gave that a quick silver spray too, then
gave it the same alcohol ink treatment
also. A tiny bit of sparkle was added
 later to the wings.



Phew job done!, I hope you like it,
 the colours are very bright irl ;)



ps. on our way to our usual walk this 
morning we came accross a tiny piglet
walking along the main road. So hard
 to catch the little thing, much squealing
too. 
 
We managed it in the end, after 
holding all the traffic up for a while.
We took it to a local farm we know
 (as no pigs around alas), they phoned
another farmer who was coming to get 
it. 

No idea how it had escaped etc.It went to
 sleep being cuddled, must have known we
 were vegetarians lol. It was put in a small
 dog cage waiting to be reunited with it's
 mummy. So a happy ending ;)

  1. This is so pretty Viv, another stunner! Absolutely worth the effort as it looks amazing with the lovely colours and the silver and sparkle. Well done on your piglet rescue! My heart hurts I think how short his or her happy ending will be, but at least for today there was friendly hands to help out. Good for you xx

  6. This is so gorgeous Viv...... I tried to follow your instructions but failed miserably!! I'd love to know more on how you did it and what a TCW stencil is! (ok I understand what a STENCIL is, just the TCW bit I'm struggling with!)

    And well done you on saving that poor little piglet's life!!

    Big hugs

    1. Thanks Christine.....I used some embossing type paste over the stencil (says TCW Thecraftyworkshop.com RP Ronda Palazzari Designs 6x6 stencil)...(it has 8 little stencils on it),removed stencil, then dropped a few colours of ink over it. I sprayed the silver over the rest of the card. I stamped the butterfly added ink and cut it out and added to card. I added a stamped sentiment and sequins and job done!HTH if not ask away ;) xx

    2. Thanks for that fab info Viv... soooooo... and sorry if I'm being thick.... is the stencil of hydrangeas?? That's what I see and they look wonderful... but I'm thinking that maybe that's not what the stencil is.. like one of those magic eye things though, once you 'see' something it's hard to unsee!! LOL! Anyway, whatever it is....... I really love it and NEED to try this technique! x

    3. The stencil is like a honeycomb shape with ragged edges. The ink effect I used probably confused you lol ๐Ÿ˜€ Viv xx
