Life Changing

Today's card was a fun one to create using the Corner Rays stencil and the Cloud Edger from A Colorful Life Designs.  I thought they worked well together.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and laid the Corner Rays stencil over that. Then, I inked it up with some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink in the center, next some Carved Pumpkin and then some Mustard Seed, working my way out on each side of the stencil.
  • Next, I shifted the stencil slightly and inked again using the same colours as I mentioned above.
  • After I was happy with the inking, I got out my Cloud Edger stencil and inked up the top of my card with some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink.  * The Cloud Edger is used by inking along the edge, turning it and moving it down to give the look of clouds. This stencil/ mask combo are a really great investment and are so easy to create wonderful looking skies or backgrounds for scenes.*
  • I placed the inked piece into my Misti and stamped the sentiment with some Versafine Clair ink.
  • I glued the panel onto some black cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.

Here are the stencils I used:
