Sneak Peek: Layers of Color Botanical Swirl Night Light Cover

Hello everyone!
Today I have another sneak peek for you one of the new Art Stencils being released Mon. June 14th by Layers of Color! We on the design team have been having so much fun playing with these stencils, as they are so fun and versatile!
This time, I have a sample to show you two ways. I altered this night light shade by first making a pattern of the shade itself, then stenciling it using the Botanical Swirls stencil again. It was so easy to do! I used Georgia Pacicfic whte card stock and it had all the flexibility I needed to wrap the shade. The original shade had an edging of seam binding on it, so I peeled that back, tucked my new shade cover inside, glued the seam binding back down and to give just a little more interest, I added this May Arts mesh ribbon in green. I first did just the shade alone, hoping to show more of the stencil, and then I added the flower and flourishes in shades of brown and copper because my newly finished bathroom in the basement is green and brown, with antique bronze fixtures, so I wanted to bring in some of those brown tones. I decided to show the shade as it was before I added the flowers so you could see the simpler version, and get a good look at the stencil.

So there you have it.... which way do you like it better?
