Hope you have seen some sunshine over the last couple of days, and that bitter wind has quietened down. Surely spring is nearly here!

This week I decided to get out a pack of Ali Reeve's patchwork stencils and see what I could produce with them. I popped the stencil onto a 6x6 card and ran it through my Happycut embossing machine. Then leaving the stencil in place I coloured the background with pigment inks, and then over stamped using silhouette stamps. I think the result is quite effective. I'm now thinking about taking it further and perhaps over stamping with silver embossing powder. Will think on that for now, LOL
