Heaven Sent

The trilogy is complete with this last photo.
I love the control you get when using inks and a sponge applicator
over a stencil.  A layout can be completed quickly with just
some stamping and stencil work.

I used my new Fiskar feather punch to create the sweet little feathers above. I wanted something light and lacy to insert under the photo and achieved that with some velum paper, a flower punch, and some silver colored Liquid Pearls to trace around the shape of the petals.
I finally used my LaBlanche scissor stamp!  Here you can see it under the flowers on top of the stencil work placed on the photo. I adore the ornate portion of the scissors, and hope to use it in a different way on a future project.
All chipboard is from Blue Fern Studios.
Thank you for looking.


  1. Not sure if I've ever seen anything quite as stunning as your trilogy. The colours, the stencilling, the stamping not to mention the beautiful subject matter and photos thereof are quite simply beautiful. words fail me.

  2. So you saved the best for last :) .....this is pure beauty...the stenciling is as delicate as lace and the stamping is done so well, just adds so much to your design, love those scissors too! I also love the vellum flower, the tiny feathers, your delicate little details are just so perfect...I adore this look xo
