Combinations of green and pink - 2

I played with a lot of (NEW) stencils lately, and want to show you these creations.
Today the second one....

On this card I used, YES, one (grand) brand NEW stencil from The Crafter´s Workshop!
At the same time it's a NEW favorite stencil of mine, too!
The black is structure paste. I highlighted parts with a white acrylic marker. 

 I used this beautiful stencil :TCW557 Lace 6x6

Combinations of green and pink - 1

I played with a lot of stencils lately, and want to show you these creations.
Today the first one, 
on Monday the second one with a BRAND new stencil from TCW!

....  both happen to have mostly green and pink colors on them.

Please don't ask me to list the stencils I've used on this card, LOL. 
What I like about this one is that, even when you sponge a lot of layers with a lot of different stencils in different colors, in the end it turns out to be a background. 
So, go grab your stencils and PLAY!
The sentiment is from Inkerbell Stamps, the script form Hero Arts. 
The flowers are recycled from a postcard... LOVE doing that sometimes if it fits nicely on a background.
