Hey, there, you lovely people!
AND GUESS WHAT?!
The blitz began yesterday and runs until Friday, May 16. Leave a comment each day on the Outside the Box blog to enter yourself for a chance to win the stencil that day's designer used in her project. (If she used more than one stencil, you can choose which one you want for your prize.) You have until 6:00 p.m., Sunday, May 18th, to leave your comments. Laura will select winners and post them on Outside the Box on Monday, May 19.
Today's card features the Raymelle stencil. Instead of using ink or sprays to capture the pattern, I decided to spread on some Viva Decor Silver Modeling Creme with a painter's trowel. What do you think? This modeling creme is very bright and shiny even if you can't tell from the photo.

T I P SAlthough I LOVE the modeling creme, make sure you have a pan of water next to your work surface so you can submerge your stencil immediately after using it. And don't lollygag while spreading the creme, either! This stuff dries super fast, and you don't want your stencils encrusted with it - unless you enjoy a lengthy clean-up.
