Fun with Stencils

The Wednesday challenge on Simon Says Stamp involves stencils, something I have several of but never use!  Today, I used some of them.  I began with the Simon Says Diagonal Stripe and some Distress Inks on watercolor paper; then I die cut the flower with Sixxiz Flowers Layers w/Hearts Petals and layered it with a big patterned brad.  For the card, I chose Tim's Honeycomb and Burlap stencils with the same Stormy Sky and Wild Honey inks. Then I stamped with an old SU! set, spritzed with Shimmer Goosebumps and finished off with tiny blue pearls on the stamped flowers.
