Stencils and modeling paste at the ready....mmmm....love this idea.

Hi, remember on Sunday's post I said I had an idea after watching Barbara Gray?
I have a few stencils and some modeling paste, bought after a class with Andy Skinner a wee while ago in Aberdeen.  It has been sat waiting to be played with so I thought why not?
I have to say this is my version of a style of card that seems to be on trend just now, I think next time I will omit the glitter and just use ink.  Why?  I'll let you see.  Normally I change it then show you but feeling brave today.

I have also used a chevron stencil, a doily, broken china Distress ink and Sizzix framelits and stamps Banners.  The button is from my stash and font by computer.
The glitter looked fab when I first put it on but it keeps coming off every time I touch the card, rethinking required!  

This card is winging it's way to my cousin who is going through a rough time just now with his health, just to let him know we are all thinking of him and are wishing him well.  I wanted it to be quite a cheerful but a masculine card, hopefully to brighten his mood.

It is a beautiful day today so we are hoping to make it to the beach later, maybe even for a picnic....better get my skates on. 
I don't think you need to be anywhere else when the weather is good....but I'll take my camera so you can decide later in the week.
Enjoy your Tuesday guys, I'm off for a little bit of fun in the sun!
