Jumping on the Bandwagon



Okay, so I know I'm waaaaay late for this bandwagon but I have never been very good at keeping up with trends.  And even when I do get my hands on trendy products it takes me ages to get around to using them.  Take the stencil and spray mists that I used here - I had to wipe the dust off of both of them before I started!  Ah well, better late than never.  And you know what? I just might try this again.  It was pretty fun and I'm pleased with the final result.  So pleased in fact that I'm going to enter it into the Virginia's View stencil challenge and the Moxie Fab stencil challenge.  Yee haw!  Now off to dust off some more stencils…

Oh this is fabulous Jen. I love the soft mix of patterned paper against the pink background. You should definitely do this again!

Yes, do it again, Jen. This turned out spectacular. I love stenciling - even on walls, (lol) although that trend went out a while ago.

So glad you jumped on this trend. Your card is just lovely. I have jumped on the shopping for mist and stencil trend, but have yet to jump on the using those things trend. Perhaps I will wait until they go out of style.

I love it! And trends...bah. You've got to wait until it fits in with your own style, or you won't enjoy using the newest stuff anyway!

Obviously you just had to wait until the perfect inspiration struck -- and this stencil with the butterfly is just that!
