Stencil It! Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!

Blogging has driven me mad the last couple of days with the Captcha that has appeared on some blogs! Commenting has taken me ages especially if the blog isn't written in English and the Captcha won't translate or let me copy it to translate it so I had to keep trying to guess which pictures it wanted me to tick!!! I have tested my blog and couldn't see it come up when trying to publish a comment but if anyone else see's it on here please let me know and I will be on a mission to remove the flipping thing.

Captcha rant over! The sun is shining, it's lovely & warm, & I am desperate to do some gardening but my back & shoulder won't allow me to, so I will just have to supervise instead which is something I've discovered I'm not bad at lol.

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Stencil It
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

 This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring 
Stencil Girl
   goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.
Today I have used a cute Tiddly Inks stamp on my card and gone all out pretty and feminine as I was itching to use some of my lovely new Prima flowers.

I have featured Stencil Girls lovely X Rows stencil on my card using both the larger X's & the smaller. This is a large 9"x12" stencil so it's perfect for larger projects as well as cards. I used embossing paste with my stencil and as usual went over the X's with gesso once the paste was dry to highlight my stencil work.

The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R21, hair - E47, E44, E42, dress - C3, C1, C00, bows - R32, R30, R00,  heart flowers - RV66, RV63, RV55, butterflies - RV95, RV93, RV91.

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
