Stencils, Texture, and the Runway!

Good afternoon! Had a little more time to play this morning, so thought I would get this posted this afternoon (especially since one of the challenges it is for is ending tonight!):

First up - the new Runway Inspired Challenge that posted this morning:

Next up - I enjoyed using my first Hero Arts stencil for this, so linking up with A Blog Named Hero:

I used my new Hero Arts Large Lotus Flower stencil, and embossing post over some subtle glitter cardstock from DCWV. As soon as I pulled my stencil off, I sprinkled on some black glitter that I have had in my stash forever! I have no idea who or where it was from, but it was perfect for this. I had glitter EVERYWHERE after this! Oh well!

Once that dried very thoroughly - I used the Thanks word die from Paper Smooches Quote Tag Dies, attached it to a strip of vellum and wrapped it around and attached to the back. Added the pearls on each side, then covered it with Glossy Accents. Once that dried, I attached the entire thing to my card base.

A pretty simple card - but with lots of waiting for stuff to dry! I'm quite happy with how it came out though!

{Edited to add: I am also linking this up with the Stencils: Styling with Stencils Challenge in the Moxie Fab World}
