Once I had used the circle stencil with embossing paste on white layering weight cs, I sprayed it with yellow shimmer. Cut a piece of ink pad replacement foam and sponged on the orange, brown and a dark red. Had heard that this was a good way to add color and not worry about the sponge getting fouled. Worked quite well and the piece of pad actually cleaned up and can be reused. The black spray is a new product to me: dylusions ink spray in black marble. It sprays in many shades of black and adds drops in many sizes. I like to cut lots of different things to keep on hand with the Silhouette. This is a new cut of pine cone and I really like it. Stamped the squares, swishes and sentiment in black and mounted on white cs base. This is for a sweet neighbor that gifted us with a blueberry pie for Thanksgiving.
