WOYWW? 422 -Following the rules

No more paperwork in creative areas.
We're featuring techniques- only one per post over at Quietfire Digital and Quietfire Creations
and it about killed me to only feature one on the Home is the Heart of life ATC.
Please visit  Quietfire Digital for details
Exclusive to Deskers!
The stenciled hearts- use your stencil brush to add ink to the hearts through the stencil, then dab on some Versamark, and with the stencil still in place, sprinkle on the embossing powder so it builds up. You can pat it down a bit with a spoon,
Carefully remove the stencil and heat from underneath.
Then you can go whole hog by applying wink of stella and glossy accents!
(or not)
TIA for visiting and your kind words! I'm off to see the world via WOYWW!

  6. Hi Robyn, love that sentiment stamp. Beautiful. Great technique too. TFS. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #10 XxX

  7. Robyn your restraint is to be admired Well Done! Personally I think such rules cramp our artistic bent - but I suppose you have to follow other peoples rules so you are said to "play nicely with others' , interesting quote, a play on 'Home is where the heart is?' Personally I find home to be a place where your spirit somehow connects with the earth, further to that perhaps a lot of todays unhappiness is that lack of sense of connection, too many spiritually homeless wanderers?....Happy WOYWWing, Dxxx @29

  8. Cute cards. I never thought of using my stencils with embossing. Love it!
    Have a great day!

  9. What a fantastic idea - I have so many little stencils, and apart from using chalks or running them through my BigShot, I could never think of any other way to use them :) I'm definitely going to give this a go.
    Have a wonderful WOYWW Wednes-yay!

  10. Interesting technique! I will have to try it! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #39

  11. I like how you chose to make each one of your tags look a little bit different. And your maxim of "No more paperwork in creative areas!" is a very smart one. paperwork can crash any creative "party," can't it?

  17. Hi Robin, that's a great technique and I love the little heart stencil. I also like your ATCs. Don't be alarmed by the change of profile name, I'm trying out my husband's new tablet. Have a good week. Elizabeth x #43
