Golden bloom ...

I've another clean and simple one layer card to show for this evening's efforts!  I've tried a new to me technique using a stencil, distress ink and cosmic shimmer texture paste.  It's a fun technique to do but not very easily photographed - in fading light it is quite difficult to see the shimmer the paste creates but trust me in real life there is a lovely sheen to the image.  I might try to get another photograph in the sunshine!

I used:

Distress Inks - Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Pine Needles
Cosmic Shimmer Clear Texture Paste
Imagination Crafts Stencil
STAMPlorations - Subway Art Builders: DARE

I am going to enter the following challenges:

"Less is More" - One Layer card, Off the Edge
Inkspirational - CAS
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Stencil It
