Stamp and Stencil

The next challenge one of the ladies in my group had was to Stamp a background stamp and then stencil over in another color and I went with this vine leaf stamp (sorry I don't have the name) and a crackle stencil in gray over it. This was going to my brother in law so I was going for a more masculine feel to it.


Stampin up -- Leaf background stamp from 2000, w/ bundled sage and mowed lawn distress inks
Prima -- Crackle stencil, w/ Hickory smoke distress ink and gray chalk
K&co. - Flora and Fauna Die cut cardstock
Purple Daisy Designs -- Dragonfly stamp
EK Success -- dragonfly punch
Spectrum Sparkle pen -- Olive Jade and clear on dragonfly

I am really enjoying those sparkle pens to add a bit of color and sparkle at the same time and the clear pen is nice with them.

On Monday I will be sharing a Dies R us post and it will also be the challenge I had for the ladies in our group to try, so I hope you will stop by then and see what I came up with for a Challenge and maybe you would like to try it too :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Out of the ballpark, Connie! Love this soothing, leafy card. 2000 was before my time with SU, but I would have had that background in a heartbeat. So pretty!

That dragonfly looks so good ...

Hope your weekend has been a good one, its certainly flown by.
As I type this it's almost 10.40pm Sunday - so a quick cup of tea and then bed I think!

Look forward to seeing your posts in the coming new week

Take Care

All the best Jan

Great work Connie, you're so clever, I'm not sure but Stampin up had a stamp like that image in a set. Prob loads of others do too. Am sure your brother loved it.
Thanks for sharing your inspiration!
