Believe!

Hello again!  Today I'm playing with a Simon exclusive Christmas stencil.  These are really fun to use!

SSS Believe stencil

I secured the Believe stencil to a piece of red cardstock that I trimmed to be exactly the same size, and then spread on some modeling paste, removed the stencil, and sprinkled on some Ritz microfine Cool Highlight glitter.  Here's a closer shot to show the sparkle, just like freshly-fallen snow:

After an overnight drying, I added my panel to a white card base, and then added the beautiful Eliza Snowflake to it, centered with a large pearl to hide the foam square I used to pop it above the surface a bit.  
If anyone's wondering, the stencil measures 6" tall by 3" wide, easily mailable in a business envelope or one of your own making.  

Don't think that you need a medium of some kind to make these stencils work......next time I'll try using it with just some inks.  

Thanks for visiting today - have a great weekend!  We had our first snowflall earlier this week, but I think it will be melted soon, just in time to clean up the fallen leaves that it covered!

Oh I love the graphic effect you've created with the stencil Lin. Maybe I'll get round to trying that paste stuff some day - it looks so deliciously glittery!

What a rich and elegant card, Lin! Great shimmer! I am just getting into stencils....a bit messy.....but such fun. You have found another technique to add to those you have mastered.
