Hi! Thanks for visiting today. I’m sharing a card I made some time ago, but didn’t have a chance to blog about. It uses the very cool Flickers stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. I got to use one of my roll-off prints that get created while I’m monoprinting, and they always add a lot of interest and the look of texture to a project.

I took a piece of cardstock and rolled the Creole Spice Kaleidacolor inks on to it with a brayer. Then I applied a sparkly orange embossing paste through the Flicker stencil. As that dried, I worked on the rest of the card.
I trimmed down my roll-off print that had a lot of orange on it to 4″ x 5 1/4.” On my card base, I inked the edges with VersaMagic Ink in Aloe Vera. Then, I stamped my sentiment, which is from Pinkfresh Studio’s My Favorite Things to Say Pt. 2, on orange cardstock. Next, I adhered my layers, using foam for the top two. I needed more shine, so I grabbed my Starry Colors watercolors from Kuretake and splattered gold all over the whole thing.
I really like the sentiment with this stencil. Passion is fiery, and I think they work really well together. The Aloe Vera on the edges pulls out the green under the embossing paste, and cools off the card just a touch.
