STAMPlorations December Stencil Blog Hop Day 6

Hello Crafty Friends!
The Stencil Party is in full swing over at STAMPlorations. I am back today with a CAS card using the ARTplorations Autumn Falling Stencil in combination with the Peace On Earth CUTplorations Phrase Die.

Well, I have been in the embossing powder pot again. My inspiration came from autumn leaves on a frosty morning and the need to use up the left over mixed powder from my card here. When you use two colours randomly, you inevitably end up with a mix of coloured powder.

To make my card, I decided on the layout, attached my stencil to the linen effect base card, masked off the leaves I wasn't going to use and sponged with Versamark. I then removed the stencil, sprinkled my embossing powder on, removed the excess and heat set. Using a silver gel pen, I added some veins before attaching my die-cut sentiment and sequins to finish.

Here is a close-up of all the sparkle...

... and a last look at my finished card ...

Back to the Stencil Hop over at STAMPlorations. Shery is not only throwing a Blog hop ... she is also throwing a LINKY Party!
