Hello Paper Players #492

I've finished using all the backgrounds made on the weekend with the new Jennifer McGuire Distress Stencil technique. This is one of my favorites and I used the Paper Players sketch this week.   The sentiment and eucalyptus die cuts are from Simon Says, and some Nuvo drops for embellishment. I love this stencil from MFT, Moroccan Mosaic, that reminds me of many happy memories visiting that beautiful country.

And another card I made using the sketch. On the Altenew blog hop this weekend, someone used alcohol inks on acetate and placed it over the white card base where image was stamped in black. I tried, but the purple ink simply would not 'stick' enough to the acetate. Itried using Snow Cap- but forgot that it is opaque. I found the mistake while cleaning off my desk and really liked the way it looked...so I stamped the Altenew Paint a flower Iris on top of the acetate with StazOn ink. Adhered to white card base as I would have to create a shaker.  Love it!


  1. Both are just lovely! You had me at BLUE! Thanks for sharing these and playing with my sketch this week at The Paper Players!

  2. I love both of your cards! I saw both Jennifer and Therese's videos with those techniques and your sample turned out beautifully! The eucalyptus leaves in white over the mosaic stencil is just stunning. Thanks so much for joining us at The Paper Players this week!

  3. Both fabulous cards what a great use of the techniques. I love them both,but I am especially drawn to the whimsical softness of the second one. So glad you joined us at the Players this week
