Meet today's card.
Just some simple masking using this fun new stencil from ACLD called Mid Century Geometric.
I always enjoy the look of circles on a card so this one really fit the bill.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock that was 3 3/4" x 5".  I laid that onto my Waffle Flower Stencil Mat and positioned the Mid Century Geometric stencil over my cardstock.
  • I wanted to make areas of specific colour instead of blending them together so I masked off the circles as I went along using some low tack tape.  It was a simple process.  These are the Distress Oxide colours I used:  Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Carved Pumpkin.
  • When I was happy with the inking, I splattered with my white Posca pen and set aside to dry.
  • When the panel was dry, I die cut a circle from the center.  
  • I stamped and clear heat embossed the sentiment onto the circle.
  • I glued the main stenciled panel onto a piece of pink cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.
  • I added some foam tape to the back of the circle, and popped it back into place.
  • I added 3 black gems under the sentiment.

Here is the stencil I used:

More bright and pretty colours for this geometric stencilled background but no purple this time and more yellow and it really sings out. I love the circle cut from the same piece and the black inked sentiment and gems to finish..I think the words are perfect. x

What a great use of the stencil Karen, and I love the sentiment on the raised circle - the dimension adds so much to this wonderful, cheerful card

You have used one of my favorite quotes, and it's by Picasso. This card is simply wonderful, and I love the bright colors and modern design. Lots of fabulous work here, thanks so much for playing along with us for the last time over at the Mod Squad. I am very sad that we are retiring, it has been a great ride. Hope to see you around the web!!
