Here's my card---

I love this cutting plate from Taylored Expressions sooo much!  For today's card, however, I used it as a stencil.  I cut out the plate die onto chipboard to have a fairly sturdy stencil (hoping I can resuse it a few more times).  Then, I sponged on Night of Navy, Bright Blue and Pear Tart dye inks.  I layered it onto a panel of navy, then of grey before putting it on a white card base.  I used sentiments from Paper Sweeties and My Favorite Things, stamped them in Night of Navy on a vellum cut banner die from Paper Sweeties.  I set the ink with clear emboss powder and heat gun.

Now, show us your paper project inspired by our colors this week!  We love being inspired by you as well!

Fabulous use of the TE cutting plate! Those colours and your technique make it look like stained glass, which is perfect for your Easter/Cross themed card!

Fantastic, Nance ... the stencilling is fabulous ... looks just like a stained glass window behind the Easter cross! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)
