Everything Changes......

 
     This card was created for lots of reasons.  I found a fantastic challenge with a tutorial, I wanted to use some new things, and I can not get use to the new days of doing things at some sites.

     Let me first list the challenges I am going to share this card for.

Speedy Fox and Friends #278-  I just had to try this tutorial!
Unity Blog Hop-  Day has changed to hook up those Unity Stamp projects.  I used their sentiment.
NBUS #5- My Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves, and my Unity sentiment are new to me.

 
     The tutorial over at Speedy Fox and Friends was really fun!  I started with a white base, added a piece of designer paper that has gold leaves.  I positioned my mini bricks stencil from Crafters Workshop, and pounced it with Hero Arts Unicorn White ink.  Next I took a background stamp from Stamp Camp and with black ink, I stamped through the openings in the stencil to create a layered look.  I cut my leaves from kraft and sponged them with white on the edges.  I stamped, colored, and fussy cut my morning dove for The Artist Stamps in CA.  (very old but favorite stamp from my collection).  My Unity sentiment was stamped, colored to match my dove, and punched with an SU! circle punch. This was from one of my Unity prize bags.   Random sequins were added for sparkle.

     I so appreciate your visit, and hope you visit again.  Thanks!

I just love this one with that great technique! I tried this technique, but my stencil supply is limited to small designs and nuffin worked! I love the gold leaves on the bricks - what a cool card! Nice job!
