AAA Challenge #61: stencils

AAA Challenge #61: stencils

I used a Scrapberry stencil (petals pattern) on some purple (3 tones) diecuts I  made with the Simon Says Stamp tri square die.
I tried to just cut 6 exact squares on the trimmer, but somehow small pieces like that move and go wonky, so I chose this diecut, also it has nice rounded edges.

I stuck them all together at the back and laid the stencil on top and smeared embossingpaste through it ( Dutch Do ba doo ). Sprinkled some iridescent glitter on top.

Let it dry then seperated them again. I want the design to be continous, otherwise there's no need to stick the pieces together. Then I realised the spacing I wanted wasn't going to happen so stuck them all next to eacht other again, lol...I tried 4 squares, but that didn't look right with 3 tones, If I had used 4 I could have used one color square each, but alas...probably should have measured ;-) But because I already made something similar once I figured it would work...but on that card I did hand cut the paper..ah live and learn

Mounted each square with foamtape onto the cardbase and stamped the sentiment from Sizzix (birthday by Stephanie Barnard) with Versafine black onyx ink.
