Dragonflies and water lily

It's only a couple of years since I got interested in using stencils, and I've built up quite a collection of lightweight plastic ones, so I'd almost forgotten about the brass stencils that I bought many years ago -  intended at the time for dry embossing over a light box.

Anyway, a little tin of brass stencils emerged from a cavern at the base of Mount Stash while I was looking for something else, so I just had to have a play, didn't I?  I chose this pretty dragonfly and water lily stencil and used finger daubers to apply inks through it onto a cream card base. I chose cream to keep the colours muted, but I think now I've resurrected this stencil I might try it again using stronger colours on white - heck, perhaps even a bit of glitter!

I am sharing this with

Love how you found your stencils at the bottom of Mount Stash... LOL!! It's great to play with things that haven't seen the light of day for a while. Your card is perfectly CAS and the colours are very pretty and subtle. Thanks so much for playing along at Less Is More xx
