Happy Tuesday, peeps! Brrr....it's really cold here in PA! No snow though, I am wishing for at least one good one this winter! Hopefully soon! Anyway, I am doing something different today, I have a one-layer card for the Less Is More challenge this week:
I see so many cool cards featuring stencilling, but I just don't feel as if I am very good at it! But I thought I'd give it a go, using a SU mask and the colors of Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry, to create my off-center design:
I used blending brushes to sponge on each color, going from light to dark. For the sentiment, I used a sentiment from the new So Sentimental set, lining it up in my Stamparatus and inking it in Blackberry Bliss to get a good sharp image. I cleaned off the stamp, still on the plate, and inked it again with Versamark, then heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder:
The embossing really shines on top of the stencilling!! And the stencilling wasn't that difficult! Thanks for popping in today!
Cassidy has always enjoyed drawing, and she got a big sketch book and some colored pencils from her uncle this Christmas, so she has been entertaining us with some of her artwork. She made this for Wayne, and all the letters are made from sports equipment!
Dana said the W is made of footballs; the A is baseballs; the Y is basketballs, the N is hockey sticks (my favorite), and the E is hockey pucks! She is also learning cursive, so I love how she connected the W and A in Wayne's name (as well as her own signature). Her creativity amazes me! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
