Stencil Stamping Hello Card

Good Morning :)
I have my DT card for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge to share.
All The challenge details, entry and DT inspiration can be found HERE.

My card uses a technique I taught at the C4E Crop and workshops this month, stamping with stencils.
This is a great way to get more from your stencils and can create fabulous backgrounds for cards, layouts and journal pages.

The technique is far from new as many people who use inks with stencils will 'blot' the stencil on to another page or piece of paper so as not to waste the ink. For this card I did not ink through the stencil at all but added ink directly onto the stencil then pressed it on to the card.

Once the ink was dry I stamped over it with Versafine ink and two different stamps.

The die cut feathers were cut from silver miri card and added on to the card with sticky fixers and some cotton thread behind.

To finish the card I added a few sequins and stamped a 'Hello' sentiment with Versafine ink.
I seem to be adding cotton thread to all my projects at the moment lol! 
Do you have a repeating element in your projects?
That's all from me today, thank-you for stopping by have a great weekend!
