Good Morning
Today's card was a simple one to create using 2 new stencils from A Colorful Life Designs called Boho Heart and Heart Surround.  
If you scroll down and look at the last card I posted before this one, you can see how you can get a totally different look using the same stencils but reversing the way you layer them.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I laid a piece of white cardstock onto my Make Art station and positioned the BoHo Heart stencil over to the side.  I inked it up with some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink.
  • Keeping that stencil in place over my cardstock, I positioned the Heart Surround stencil right over the top of the first one and inked again using some Uncharted Mariner DOX ink.  Layering them up gave a totally different look to the heart.
  • I removed both stencils and splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • When the piece was dry, I placed it into my Misti and stamped the sentiment from the new stamp set called Oodles also from A Colorful Life Designs. 
  • I glued the finished panel onto a piece of blue cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base. 
  • To finish off my card I added 3 black gems around the sentiment.

Here are the stencils I used:

This is a totally different look to the last and also very pretty Karen, and I love the mix of blues and the fun sentiment. This would make a super valentine card/anniversary card. x
