Today's card is a fun one, created using a Bokeh layering stencil and my Distress Oxide inks.
I'm playing along with a Best Friends Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock for my main panel and laid it onto my Stencil Mat.
  • Next, I got out the Bokeh Layering stencil from TE. This set has 3 stencils to it, so I placed the first stencil over my panel.  The stencil mat has a corner which is very useful when doing laying stencil, so you are able to get all the stencils lined up in the right position.  I inked over it with some Mustard Seed DOX ink.
  • I removed that stencil and placed the 2nd one down and inked with some Carved Pumpkin and repeated that process with the final stencil and some Picked Raspberry.
  • When all the stenciling was done, I splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • I decided to cut the finished panel into 2 pieces to add interest and glued them onto a piece of white cardstock, then onto a piece of some matching orange cardstock.
  • I stamped the sentiment in my Misti, die cut it out with a circle and glued that onto a slightly larger orange circle.  
  • I glued the panel onto an A2 card base, then popped the sentiment over to one side.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
