Hi everyone. I got a chance to play around yesterday with the trend week challenge over at Just Us Girls. The challenge is to use a stencil. Here is what I did with it.

I used the clock stencil from Tim Holtz and paired it with some glossy white embossing paste from Dreamweaver. Once dry I used some spray inks from Memories to add color and then finished off with some distress inks to highlight different areas.

I cut out the word die and inlaid it using black cardstock. Then I added a layer of Faber Castell glaze over it. This gave it a bit of shine and helped to keep the small bits of the word stuck on. Finished this off with adding a layer of black cardstock, satin ribbon and twine.

Thanks for stopping by.
