The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Amazing Grace Card with Stenciling

Hello and happy Friday to everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a card to share with you using the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil - Splash and some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks.

Now I know the stencil is supposed to look like splashes and it does but it also reminds me of flower petals when the stencil is put on the side.  It reminds me of chrysanthemum flowers.  I taped the stencil in place with some low tack tape and then I used the mini blending tools with three of the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks - Broken ChinaSalty OceanMermaid Lagoon.  I know it's a bit hard to see the different colors in the photos and I am sorry about that.  I don't know if it was the lighting or what but it kind of looks like it's all the same color in the photos but in real life you can see the three colors on the card lol.  I started with broken china at the top, salty ocean in the middle and then mermaid lagoon is on the bottom.

For the sentiment I used one of the stamps from the  Stamp Simply Clear Stamps - Farmhouse Scriptural Thoughts SS-025 stamp set.  To get the two different colors of ink I used the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and I masked part of the stamp with some paper and inked it up with salty ocean ink.  I removed the paper and stamped the sentiment.  Then, I repeated the process by covering up the other part of the sentiment and inking it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The stamp platform works perfectly for doing the two tone stamping.  Then I added some May Arts 5/8" Adhesive Rosettes - Black ribbon across the front of the card.  I also added some Petaloo Botanica Colections Baby Blooms BlueBaby Blooms Teal and for a bit of sparkle I added a few Prima Say It With Crystals Zella Teal.

I used Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L Foam Tape in between the cardstock layers and that finished off the card.  The card base is a white A2 top folding card.  

I hope you enjoyed today's card share!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  All of the supplies used to create the card are listed and linked below and can be found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  To see more card inspiration I encourage you to check out the Stamp Simply Blog.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
