Love making this card - but it did get a bit tricky - lol - risking life and limb!
The technique is to ink through the stencil, I used Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Shaded Lilac. Make sure this dries properly and then re-attach the stencil (Memory Box Tessatina) and apply Translucent Paste. Remove the stencil and drench in Micro Beads. Now when I say drench, it's a big stencil and unfortunately I didn't quite catch all the ones that didn't stick to the paste. My craft room has a laminate floor so I ended up a bit like Bambi trying to walk on ice until I hoovered - so be warned !
Once thoroughly dry just mat and layer and I then added a Memory Box die - Thank You Extravaganza and a couple of gems on the flowers. If you enlarge the photo you should see the effect of the beads better, which to me suited the tile pattern of the stencil.
Big thank you to all my followers new and old, I hope you are all having a great 2014 so far - did any of you make a happy jar ? I only have 4 notes in mine so far - but that's 4 more things to make me smile that I would probably have forgotten :-) .
