iPhone, uPhone


I'm still in iPhone mode, and the more I looked at Marion's inspiration card at Muse, the more I saw an iPhone in that frame.  I wasn't sure how I was going to incorporate a flower and foliage into a card with an iPhone, but hey, that's what artistic licence is for.  Who needs a reason anyway?


I made some modelling paste up from Polyfilla and a combination of Distress Ink, Memento Ink, and because neither of them were working, a good dollop of purple acrylic paint, which I should have just gone for in the first place.  While the chevrons were still wet I sprinkled them with ultra-fine glitter.  And then the phone rang.  Rapidly drying stencils, glitter everywhere...

I'm playing along with CASology where the cue word is purple:


And with CAS-ual Fridays where the challenge is to have something extending over the edge of your card/project,


And at Seize The Birthday where the theme is always birthday, but this week's topping is chevrons.


And I'm also sharing it in the gallery at the Stencilled Online Card Class.  I so enjoyed that class.  If you were ever unsure about taking the plunge with stencils, give this class a go.

  12. Another sweet iPhone card! Great job incorporating the flowers into your design! Love the sparkly chevrons!

    Artistic licence? Perhaps you used your iPhone to order the flowers....
