Perseverance Pays

Hello and Welcome to today's post for the
The heading says it all!

After spending an afternoon trying 
This technique from Jay Soriano 
all my efforts landed up you know where.
It wasn't as easy as it looked BUT I was
determined to keep trying so the 
following day it worked. Yay!
So happy with the result
but has taken me an age
to try and get a decent photo with the silver foil
and soft stenciled background.
I used SU reinkers in
Rich Razzleberry, Brilliant Blue
Mossy Meadow and Yo Yo Yellow.
Some of these colours got lost in the drying
but happy that I got a pattern from it all.
Cut it out with a stitched die and
attached to white card base.
Added a die cut in silver and finished with the
silver strip on the side.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

A close up

My Mix is Oxidized Metal, Stamping,
Stenciling and Die Cutting.
Thanks to Susan for  picking this technique
enabling me to try something new and completely different..
Great inspiration from the Designers.

Till next time - Cherrio from
