It's all in the pattern....

Good afternoon and thanks for looking in today . How has Monday treated you ? Good I hope.

Did you have a good weekend or are you in stress mode...?

I have finally delivered my last batch of pyrography orders, had coffee with a friend, and just done the last bit of present shopping. Tomorrow I am going up to Kendal for some family time,,,although my Mum has just reminded me to put my water wings and rubber ring in the car.,.

Today I wanted to share a card with you that was on Paul Church's last show....it uses the wonderful set of pattern Stencils....

I just love them all , and so I wanted to design a card that used all four Stencils in one go...

I started by firstly cutting my card...

I started with the smallest piece first and the first stencil

I added some Mustard Seed D.I.

Followed with some Spiced Marmalade DI around the edges.

This is what I had

Then I used the next piece of card and another stencil

 

This time starting off with Spiced Marmalede DI and edging with Festive Berries DI

Can you see a design developing? I edged each square with the colour that I was going to use on the next square...

So onto the next piece of card and the next stencil

This time Festive Berries DI and Ground Espresso DI.

I really do love this stencil...just something about it....

The last piece of card was the largest , so I had to walk the stencil around the card.....

This is what I got , obviously I didn't need to add colour to the centre...

The four pieces of card looked like this after I had edged them with a black Sharpie pen

Some matting and layering and a piece of ribbon and this what I had

 

It just needed something in the middle....so the bird from the Journaling set flew in...

I coloured it with my Spectrum Noir pencils.

Yes, that's better...

Do hope that you like this....

I had better go...Eric is pacing....and nudging my leg...so it must be time for another walk...

Thanks for the chat and grab a mince pie on your way out....home made off course!!!

Take care lovely followers...

Hugs
