Retro Sketches #46

I have enrolled in an online craft class and this is one of the techniques they showed.. You use a blending tool and a stencil and mask off areas of the card.. Well I had a lovely rose stencil. I used this weeks wonderful sketch from Retro Sketches and my favourite colors of Razzleberry and Old Olive.
I tried a new way of putting my bows on too under the brad and attached it that way thought it needed a little ribbon..  Used a little mister and added a little sparkle to the flower popped up the middle leaves to add a little dimension.. Was a fun technique and will be looking around for stencils now.. Always like a technique that  you can expand with what you already have.

So here is my card..

I would like to welcome 2 new followers to my little blog of cards, Judith and SiskiyouSue. So pleased that you have joined as a follower hope you find something to inspire you or just make you smile..
