My first card in 2017! I would like to send wishes to all for a healthy and happy 2017.
Birthday cards are always on the list of cards I need. I like having the time to just think about what I would like to do, and today was a lazy day, so perfect timing. I used a new stencil for my background today, and sponged with my beautiful Clarity Stamp brushes, that make stenciling so easy. I'll add a picture at the end of this post. I used three colours of Tim Holtz Distress inks, sponging the light gold in the center and the different oranges on either side. I did not cover the entire panel, instead going lighter towards the edges. I placed the panel inside my Misti and played around a bit before making a decision on where I wanted my sentiment placed ... I bet we all do that. Misti made it much easier to do, as this too is a new stamp and requires more than one go at inking. This took 3 goes ... which is why I 💖 my Misti. I die cut the candle and sponged on the darkest orange and the light gold colour, and attached to my card on foam dots, and nothing has changed in 2017 ... I still love sequins, so I completed my card with a few. Thank you for visiting today.

These are the brushes I mentioned above. I ordered them from Simon Says Stamp as I do not know of a company that carries these in Canada. They are fantastic brushes for stenciling. I would very much like more, one for each colour, maybe one day.
