Getting technique-y with stencils

Hi there crafty friends.
I want to share a card I made using a stencil and embossing powder.
I think this was the first time trying it out, and I really
like the looks of it. Here, check it out:

Oh look, shiny!

I taped around the area closest to where I was using the stencil then went to town
sponging Versamark glue into the stencil, then heat embossing in copper. Continued
the copper vibe and used matching ink for the sentiment and some rediscovered
copper glitter paper in my stash. Score!
Very CAS, for me. (You know I love my layers!)

That's it for this post. More to come, as I had some fun with this technique.
Thanks for visiting. Have a relaxing evening!
