About Me

My photo
Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 54 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, jewelry making, stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

Trying a stencil brush

I've used this Kitchen Sink stamp set & layout before but I wanted to try some additional shading with a stencil brush.  It worked great except for a spot at the top left that got kind of gloppy for some reason.  It was my first application to the paper and I didn't tap it off on anything else first.  I think like sponging that is something you need to do.  I tried to hide the bad spot with a die greeting.  It isn't exactly centered but it did the job.
