Uniko Challenge #63 : Anything goes - Twist- Use a stencil(s)

 Hi there!

Quickly checking in with a card to remind you about the current challenge over at Uniko studio !

I combined two stencils to create today's card :

I have always been intrigued by the fleur de lis emblem , I love the shape, must have something to do with the symmetry and clean graphic lines of it. 

Up until the day I made this card I haven't taken time to read more about it. So I took some time and learned that it is  :

  1. A stylized lily composed of three petals bound together near their bases. It is especially known from the former royal arms of France, in which it appears in gold on a blue field.
  2. A European iris - from Old French flour de lys ‘flower of the lily’.

For my card I used :

I started off with the square stencil in speckled egg ink. It was such a happy moment when I realized the fleur de lis image fits beautifully in the square . I stenciled each row of the lilies separately in wilted violet because the format of the two stencils are not completely coordinating. I do think it was worth the time and effort because I love the end result! After the stenciling was done , I cut the panel smaller in a banner shape again playing with the symmetry of the design :)
I finally stamped the sentiment using my misti stamping tool and added the pearls... to go with the royal history of the fleur de lis !
