SSS Let's Chill, Layering Cosmos

 *This post contains affiliate links to Simon Says Stamp

Hi all!  I've got a stencil only card to share today featuring the new Layering Cosmos stencil from Simon's Let's Chill release.

I love how easy this stencil is to use.  For the petals, I used Cherry and Blush, and then Fairway and Sprout for the leaves/stems.  Sunbeam was used for the flower centers.  For each of these layers I used the new Detail Round blending brushes.  Simon also released new Flat blending brushes.  These smaller brushes are perfect for smaller areas like these flowers.

Once my flowers were complete, I thought the panel needed just a little something else to kind of ground/balance the image.

Solution, the Geo Leaves stencil.  I placed that over top and just added a light inking around the edges using the new Flannel ink color.  This stencil is perfect for this application because the design is a bit more sparse in the center portion, so I didn't do any masking, just applied the ink towards the outside of the panel.

To finish, I just added a simple sentiment strip from Reverse Well Wishes which was popped up over the stenciled panel.

Super quick and easy!
