Separate Ways - 3 Ways

Don't you just love a good basic stencil that can be used in multiple ways? Separate Ways by A Colorful Life Designs is perfect no matter which way you turn it!
I used the same stencil, Separate Ways, to make 3 cards. I did use Pixie Spray on the back for a good tight adherence. The birthday card shown below has Ranger Ink Distress Oxides: Salvaged Patina and Squeezed Lemonade ink blended through the stencil. The littles are from Simon Say Stamp Critter Crowd - NBUS for me!
All 3 cards were made with Bristol Smooth Paper. Images were stamped on Ranger Ink's Distress Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper with Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink and sprinkled with Altenew's Crisp Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. I used both Daniel Smith's 238 dot cards and Kuretake Zigs Clean Color Real Brush Markers to watercolor all the images.
The ink blending for "Unicorn to my Rainbow" is also from Ranger Ink, but Distress Inks: Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Salty Ocean. The unicorn is from Simon Says Stamp: Magical Birthday and Julie Ebersole's Pure Magic stamp set for the sentiment.
For the "Make Today a Glitter..." I used the same Distress Inks but added a Distress Oxide: Wilted Violet. The images are from a LDRS set I bought off of HSN called Tea Time Fairies. Aren't they just the cutest? Tiny but sweet.
Seriously, the Separate Ways stencil could be used so many ways. Check out A Colorful Life Designs website for more inspiration! And if you do shop, please use Anita Fan10 for 10% off your entire purchase (not applicable on bundles). Thanks so stopping by.
