Seriously? I haven't posted for over a week?? Oh my! Well, the stomach bug hit our family last week and over the weekend and it wasn't until Tuesday that we surfaced so I guess I haven't had much crafting time. Feels good to be back! :)
Today's Mix Ability Challenge at Splitcoaststampers is to use the negative space from any of your die cuts - you can use it as a stencil or a window, lots of fun!! I tried out several things before I hit of something that I liked - one of those days!
I took the Heart Swirl CutUps die from The Cat's Pajamas and used it to stencil all over a piece of vintage book paper. It really did look pretty but it was too busy to use the whole sheet (I could have toned it down with a bit of paint or gesso before I stenciled, but . . . ). Then I die cut hearts from it which I like much better!
I used The Tweetest Things from The Cat's Pajamas as well as the coordinating CutUps die, Home Tweet Home. The background was stamped with the Lock & Heart background (love that stamp!!)
This weekend is going to be exciting - I'm running in my first ever 5K race -eeeeekkk!! I'll let you know how it goes, until then, have a great Friday!
