Scandinavian Quilt

Today's card is featuring one of my favourite new stencils called Scandinavian Quilt from A Colorful Life Designs.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock, put it onto my Make Art Station and placed the Scandinavian Quilt stencil over that.
  • I used some tape to mask off the middle area as I wanted a 2 tone colour card.  
  • I inked up the middle with some Broken China Distress Oxide ink, added some shading with some Uncharted Mariner.
  • I removed the tape I had used to mask and positioned it along the area I had just inked.  I inked up the top and bottom area with some Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide.
  • Next, to add a bit of interest, I scored some lines top and bottom using my ScorPal and then splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • I glued the finished panel onto an A2 card base and used some foam tape to add the pre-printed sentiment. 

Here is the stencil I used:

Love this, Karen. Such beautiful shades of blue and a fabulous stencil. I might have to break down and buy it as it reminds me of Fair Isle knitting patterns which I love the knit.
