PP293 & CQC339

I've received the stencil brushes I ordered last week, so I tried them out.
I used to use sponges with stencils, but I read somewhere that brushes color more smoothly and evenly.

 The Paper Player's challenge for this week is a theme challenge - bicycle.
I have a few bicycle stamps, and I chose my favorite one for the challenge.
The stamp is retired, but I love the flowers in the basket on the back of the saddle.

And I used the colors from a colourQ challenge #339.

I liked how the color gradation turned out.

Stamp: Moving Forward
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz, Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Blendabilities
Accessories: Lattice Stencil (heidi swapp), Stencil Brushes, Pearl Basic Jewels, Dimentionals

Thank you for visiting me!
