Color Throwdown #284

I needed another Bar Mitzvah card, so those colors from this weeks Color Throwdown challenge came in really handy.....


I'm really into using stencils right now - they are so quick and easy and I love the effects you can achieve with them. This stencil is from TCW. The sentiment is a mixture of Neat&Tangled and Impression Obsession stamps. Added enamel dots - somehow they are on almost all of my cards nowadays....



Did I ever tell you that I love pottery? My hometown in Germany, where I grew up has the only pottery school in Germany. Naturally there are a lot of potters in that town and the vicinity. We had a lot of pottery at home and I have quite a few treasured pieces that I like to use frequently. Love that pot in the inspiration picture!

I'm also  adding this card to the Moxie Fab STENCIL challenge.

Always learning something new when I read your posts! I didn't know that the only pottery school in Germany was in your home town! I didn't even know that Germany had only one pottery school! How about that!
You are not the only one who loves stencils right now! They are all over blogland! I should really use mine more - they are so versatile and fun!
Fabulous card!
Enjoy your weekend,
Susanne
