stencils and pastes. . . .

are the media of choice at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge for August.



Here is my card:


I colored some Liquitex light molding paste with Archival reinkers and applied them through a Heidi Swapp polka dot stencil.  The sentiment is from Winnie and Walter and the flower is from Wendy Vecchi.  Some black gems and splatters were added for embellishment.

Also sending this to:


Just Us Girls for the color Challenge.

Simon Says Stamp for the summer challenge.

Seize the Birthday for the anything goes challenge.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy these last days of August!
