mid month Inspiration

Morning all hope you have all had a fab weekend 
I did I met up with some of my Facebook friends, and Mags 
one of my DT sisters pics will be up here later this week.

This is my mid month Inspiration for you all I have done a simple card
this time.

I used the

Extra thick embossing powder
Tim holtz distress ink Shabby shutter 
Crafters companion CoreDinations  pastels card
A4 embossing folder
Versamark clear ink pad
Stuff from my stash  
8x8 card
All highlighted words take you directly to the item I have used.

I took the stencil Stuck it to the card with masking tape then I and dabbed 
the clear pad over the stencil make sure you get it in all the holes,
Then I added the embossing powder then heated it with a heat tool.
once this was done I took 2 pots from the mica powders
and put a small amount over the image and rubbed it across the image
to leave a very soft look I then took the distress ink and added some color  around 
the image. When I embossed the background I used the same ink and rubbed it over the
raised embossing to highlight them.
Then I added some ribbon flower and feather and gems from my stash. 
Hope you have got some Inspiration from my card.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments
 and new followers.
Hope to see some of your wonderful projects
over on the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by
Love & Hugs
