I was given a Hero Arts stencil and didn't wait long to try it out. It was nice because it had several designs on one stencil, all the perfect size for cardmaking. I decided to initiate the stencil with embossing paste and used a translucent paste with some Pearl Ex added. This card shows one of the design but it doesn't show the iridescent properties of the Pearl Ex. I added white pan pastel to the left of the stenciling and the rest is obviously punches and die cuts. Stay tuned for more stencil designs.
