Pink and Doilies Cards

Good morning! Dropping by this morning with a trio of cards I put together SUPER quickly the other day with an amazing new stencil from Simon Says Stamp, paired up with some fabulous Simon Says Stamp sentiments!

I had just received the new Circular Lace stencil and was excited to try it out! I started off by laying it on a panel of watercolor paper and misting it heavily with some pink mist. Turns out it was a bit TOO heavy, and I lost the detail on the center of the doily. Turns out that it was still a good spot to stamp a sentiment, so instead of throwing it away, I added a sentiment from Loving Heart to it.

After I peeled the stencil off, I glanced at it and realized how much mist was still sitting on it - so I grabbed a white card base I had laying on my desk, and pressed it onto the stencil to soak up the extra color! I think this one ended up being my very favorite effect! I added a sentiment combined from Thoughtful Messages and Uplifting Thoughts for a completely one layer card!

And then I tried again, this time keeping the misting a *little* less heavy - it came out perfect! Sentiment on this one is from Blessed.

The two watercolor cards I trimmed down a bit and mounted on a white cardbase after stamping my sentiments using my MISTI for a nice dark impression.
