BEST - More than Words Mini Challenge

Hi everyone, today I entered the quick challenge at MORE THAN WORDS CHALLENGE
they have a monthly challenge - in which you can create a layout or art journal page, but they also have a Mini Challenge  in the month, you can create a card or tag with the challenge word,
In which this month is "BEST"
Unfortunately I can't win any prizes as one of the sponsors is Couture Creations.
but I wanted to create
a card and I used the following new release stencils from Couture Creations which are available now from your local scrapbooking store.

Here is my card

"BEST WISHES" using the word BEST for the Mini Challenge

One new product from Couture Creations is the "Be Merry Stencils",
These stencils are so versatile, that some of them can be used now for Christmas themed projects , cards and layouts but for also versatile for other themes as well.

I have created the background of my card with one of these small stencils
from the 
Christmas Threads Stencil C0724926

teamed up with the New Mixed Media products also available from Couture Creations -
Anna Griffin Texture paste C0724867  &  
Anna Griffin Mix Match Pigments C0724866

The size of the stencil is so perfect for cards, they are 4 x 6 inches approx.

Using the new Anna Griffin Texture paste C0724867 

I smooth it gently on a piece of thick card stock with a plastic spatula.

I love the raised details and textures that it leaves, once you lift off the stencil.

Leave it dry or dry with a heat gun.

I gently scooped out a small amount of the Anna Griffin Mix Match Pigments C0724866 onto a mixing plate and added a small amount of water , mixing it together and with a brush
gently dabbed the colour around the card.

I used the Blue, Yellow Gold, and Green pigments - I love the pearl and shimmer that they create.

I then trimmed the card stock to fit on a C6 card stock
I added the Word title from Imaginarium Designs chipboard word 

I also added a Magnolia Paper flower and
Be Merry Collection, Gold Bouquets flowers C0724918
