With LOVE!

Hi there!

I was so surprised when I walked into our local stationary shop on Sunday, and found a whole new shelf of craft goodies. Mostly products of Martha Steward.

With the online stencilling classes going on I saw the most inspiring projects in blogland last week.

So... with some new MS goodies in my hand and inspiration from all of you out there... I designed my own stencil using my Silhouette software, and smashed on a good amount of white texture effect which I colored using a hot pink acrylic paint.

I added a gold WITH LOVE sentiment ,also cut with my silhouette using the font 'bittersweet'.








I enjoyed the experiment... something different than my usual thing ;)

Challenge inspiration:

                                                             Case study

                                    

The first time I saw this card by Donna it really took my breath away... had to use this as inspiration.

Your heart is Gorgeous! I took the stencil class as well and haven't done this technique yet. I am going to my silhouette and make a heart stencil. Yours is just wonderful!

Wow! You sure know how to have a 'smashing' good time experimenting with new techniques! Awesome results - love the deep color that the acrylic paint achieved. FABULOUS clean & simple design!

Lovely font - there are so many different fonts that don't look like the would work...until you see them in 'action'...like the bittersweet font - love it!

Oh yeah...I'm with Ardyth on calling this one....winner, winner!!!
