I'm so happy you survived whooshing through the week to arrive at another Friday! This is a Friday the 13th, you know, which makes it an extra special day!
In the last century, where I spent most of my time growing up, people were superspicious of Fridays the 13th and thought they were bad luck. Then what happened was, the first Friday the 13th arrived in the year 2000 and no one had a bit of bad luck so, whoosh, that was the end of that fiddle-faddle!
While today may be a good-luck day, my Thursday the 12th wasn't so hot ...
What happened was I had seen some really fantastic pink, green, and white Christmas cards around Blogland thanks to the current Merry Monday challenge. I was surprised at how much I liked them (I'm not that into pink, persay) so I decided to try my hand at it.
My consultant suggested that I turn to my stencils. I bought about a dozen of them in the last year when they were everywhere to be seen, but naturally I've only used one of them. Even so, what did I reach for? The oldest darn brass stencils I own, so old they are no doubt sold in Auntie Q stores!
Well, okay then. First, I used the cardinal stencil. I painstakingly applied a Versamark pen and then the Perfect Pearls powder with my teeny cotton swabs. It took quite a while, I'm not gonna lie, but it was worth it:
Then, and only then, being a genius sort of person, I applied my sediment ...
(You know short-term memory loss is a real thing and you have to be nice to me.)
If you're too young to know anything about ancient brass stencils, here, have a look-see:
