Hello My Friend

A new month means some exciting new stencils to play with.
This pretty one is called Overall Shells from A Colorful Life Designs and works so great when creating a background.
I decide to make a very clean and simple card using it.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and positioned the Overall Shells stencil over my cardstock.
  • I wanted to keep the inking just in the center of my card panel, so I randomly inked it up staying away from the outside edges.
  • I removed the stencil and stamped the birds and the sand with some Versafine Clair in my Misti.
  • I centered and stamped the sentiment right under the birds.
  • I glued the finished panel onto a piece of matching blue cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.

Here is the stencil I used:
