A touch of stencilling

In my continuing mission to "use stuff up!" I pulled out these rub ons that came with a scrapbook kit. One is a black glitter and the second one is a glue which you rub over with a gold foil.

I had an arch blank from the middle of a card blank for a long time and thought it might look ok with them on. I then used two stencils and a sentiment over the top. Matted and put onto a card blank.

The stencil with the diamonds is a CE three part mini stencil. Mini being the operative word which I missed when I ordered them lol! Effective put difficult to do a larger area.

In a bid to also use up the other arch blank I repeated the design.

I'm entering the first card into the Stencil fun challenge where the option is Butterflies.

Because the two arch shaped card pieces were waste from a card blank, I am entering them into the Snippets challenge - hopefully they count?

Very effective - well done for using up 'stuff'. I'm also guilty of not taking enough care reading descriptions of items ordered online 🙄

A lovely design and an inventive way to use up 'stuff' - The stencilling in the archways is beautiful. I have so much stuff lurking about, I really should use it or bite the bullet and throw it out! xx
A great way to use up your arch leftovers, and love the stencilling a background of your rub-ons! The first one is my favourite!
What a clever use of rub ons and different ways of using them to make these beautiful cards Lynn.

Two gorgeous cards Lynn and a fab composition to use up “stuff” … they work perfectly and the pretty stencilling really sets the whole thing off.
