a wendy vecchi birthday card. . . .

for a friend:



With my SSS gift certificate, I purchased an SISI (stamp it, stencil it) Wendy Vecchi set.  After stamping the images, I masked them and placed the Heidi Swapp trellis stencil
over the card and sponged distress inks randomly through the stencil.  I removed that stencil and then put the flower part of Wendy's stencil over the blossom and applied distress inks through the stencil.  Then I placed the leaf portion of the stencil over the leaves and applied inks to the leaves through it.  I added some shading and highlighting to the flowers with an aquabrush.  The trio of black dots is from a SSS stamp set and the sentiment is from my new Wplus9 stamp set.

Submitting this card to the current challenge at Seize the Birthday where anything goes.




Also sending this to SSS for the summer challenge.

Thanks for your visit!
