Best Wishes


It's the start of a new month which means new stencils are out at A Colorful Life Designs.
This simple notecard was made using the Even Pairing stencil.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I decided to make a little notecard, so I cut a piece of white cardstock that was 3 3/4" square.
  • I placed the paper onto my Make Art Station and positioned the Even Pairing stencil over that.
  • Using some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink, I blended it over the stencil.  I add just a hint of Dusty Concord DOX in areas to add interest.
  • I removed the stencil and placed the panel into my Misti to stamp the Clover Silhouette to one side in black.
  • I stamped the sentiment near the top and then splattered with my black Posca pen just over the flowers.
  • I glued that finished panel onto a piece of purple cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base that was 4 1/4" square.
  • I added 3 black gems under the sentiment to bring attention to it.

Here is the stencil I used:

Wow Karen, I love the brightness of the purples with this striped stencil, and the pretty black silhouette clover and the large sentiment and gems finish it beautifully. x
