    Love it, I need to keep trying with the clarity brushes. I haven’t been very successful with them, I can’t see the color. I guess I just need to brush longer.

    I love everything about this card!! From the subtle ombre on the card front to the ombre on the sentiment to the added black pearls. I haven’t had good luck/outcome with my stencils, but I’m going to give this a try. Thanks!

    Very nice card. I love that stencil! I never thought to use painter’s tape to tape the stencil in place. Great tips. TFS!

    I hadn’t thought of setting the die back in place to ink it up. Thanks for the idea.

    Great video. I like the subtle shading on the background with the stencil. Also using the misti for the ombre sentiment is way of shading that is new to me. So thank you for sharing!
