*Stencil Us In Blog Hop*

Happy Friday Everyone!!!  It's the first Friday of the month which means it's Blog Hop time with the Design Team from Scrap 'n Stamp Canada!!  This month, we are playing with STENCILS!
I have a few stencils and I enjoy colour blending with them... but I wanted to try something a little different.  You'll recall that I did a post last month where I used the Deco Foil Transfer Gel and foil with a stencil.... so I was a little challenged to think of something else.

One of my most favourite products is the Nuvo Glimmer Paste... I have only bought the Moonstone colour and am almost done my first jar of it (I never use up supplies like this... I play for a bit then lose interest and move on to the next product).  I just LOVE this stuff.  I have played with it several times, usually just the gel over a stencil to create a tone on tone (with sparkle) look.  I was looking at the jar when working on the card for the hop and wondered to myself "can I colour the paste?".  So I grabbed a handy reinker (happened to be pink) and I put some of the Glimmer Paste in a cup and added a few drops of reinker and started playing.  And it worked!  I am so excited that my one jar of Glimmer Paste can be ANY colour I want it to be!

I will warn you though... start with one drop of ink and build up to make a darker colour... this turned out way darker than I had really wanted it to be!
Once I had the background done and let it dry I was then tasked with figuring out what to do next.  I cut out some flowers from MFT, layered them on, added a few pieces of bling and a sentiment and done!

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Neenah Solar White; assorted colours of Lawn Fawn cardstock
*Images:  MFT Bitty Birthday Wishes
*Ink:  VersaFine Clair Nocturne; reinker from my stash (any will work)
*Dies:  MFT Stitched Blooms
*Tools:  Gemini Jr; GinaK Sassy Stripes Stencil
*Embellishments:  assorted bling; Nuvo Glimmer Paste Moonstone
