Offbeat Circles

Meet today's card.
This new February released stencil called Offbeat Circles from A Colorful Life Designs is a fun one.

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 Offbeat Circles over that.  
  • To give my card a bit of a different stenciled look, I applied the inks using a baby wipe over the stencil.  The colours I used from left to right were:  Lumberjack Plaid, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink.
  • To help get a bit more definition to the look of the stenciling, I went back over with a blending brush and bit more of the inks mentioned above.
  • Leaving the stencil in place, I stamped over with some text to help add interest.
  • I removed the stencil and stamped the grid pattern over that.
  • I die cut a circle from the center of the finished panel and stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle onto that.
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of heavy white cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.

Here is the stencil I used:

This is a really modern take on a circle design with this stencil Karen, and love the red, yellow and orange tones across the card, and the circle cut from the piece and stamped with a great greeting standing out well in black. x
