Hugs ...

 I spent the morning doing housework so it seemed only fair that I spend the afternoon in my craft room!!  I just have one project to share:

I was inspired by the new challenge at AAA Birthday to use a stencil background - so that was my starting point.  I don't always have much success with stencils - I always seem to get paint under the stencil!  I see some fantastic examples of crafters ink blending with stencils but whenever I try the results seem to be blurry and not to my liking - I guess I need to try harder.  I decided I would use Inktense pencils and a water brush and I'm quite happy with the result.  I did stamp and mask the flower before adding the background stencil.  I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of card and adhered it to the card with foam adhesive.

I used:
Crafters Workshop stencil
Visible Image: Creative Chaos
UNIKO Simply Said II
Inktense Pencils

The challenge details:

Keep Crafting!
