Another Experiment With Stencil And Paste

Hi Blog Friends

I'm sorry I've been a little quiet over the last couple of days. I've been having problems with my computer. At first I thought it was just Blogger playing up, as it is wont to do on occasions, but it turns out that it actually our internet connection. John has been messing on with it - sorry, I mean attempting to fix it!!!! - and it is certainly working a little better but we may need to get in touch with  for BT. I'm hoping that I can post this, but we'll see!

My Card

I used a Sweet Poppy stencil and coloured the roses and leaves through the stencil. I then used translucent paste and clear microbeads. For only my second attempt with stencils and the first with colouring and beads
I think it turned out reasonably okay.  I'm still trying to break out of my comfort zone , but I scuttle back pretty soon! I stamped the JustRite sentiment with Encore Metallic Purple onto the smallest SB Resplendent Rectangles die.

Well I will hopefully try to visit some of your blogs now and see what happens. I managed a couple this morning.

Hope you are enjoying a little sunshine even if it is still jolly cold. It's lovely to see the snowdrops, which seem to be quite late this year. 

Love and hugs from Christine xx
