Elegant Pine

This card was made using the Hero Arts Stencil "Elegant Pine" and Golden Gel Mediums "Light Molding Paste".  I placed some of the medium into a small cup and added Distress Ink Peeled Paint reinker to the paste.  After this was mixed I taped the stencil onto my paper and spread the medium.  It is like spreading butter smooth, remove the excess and pull off the stencil.  I then added Distress dry glitter  "clear rock candy" and let it dry.  Little Yellow Bicycle  was used for the framing and was cut using a Grand Oval from Spellbinders.  The card was then mounted on red by Bazzill.  A Sentiment from DRS designs was stamped in black and cut with a Spellbinder label and mounted.  Two large pearls finish off the card.  This card is very large being almost 6 x 8.  Hope you enjoy.


  1. This is FABULOUS, Mary Jo! I've not tried stencils & paste for a long while, but it's always a fun technique and great look! LOVE the finished product and that awesome sentiment!!!
