Through the Window


Good Morning and Welcome
Lots of wonderful new releases for October over at A Colorful Life Designs.
Today's card is featuring 2 of the new stencils for this month called:

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I placed a piece of white cardstock onto my Make Art Station and placed the 16 Square Shadow stencil over my panel.  I inked over that with some Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink to fill in the squares, then added a bit of Tumbled Glass DOX ink along the edges just to add a bit more interest.
  • Leaving that stencil in place, I put the Scandinavian Flowers stencil over it and inked it up with some Rustic Wilderness DOX ink.
  • I splattered the whole panel with my white Posca pen and set aside to dry.
  • While that dried, I stamped and then die cut the sentiment.
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of black cardstock, then onto a white A2 sized card base.
  • I used some foam tape to pop the sentiment up over to the side.

Here are the stencils I used:

I love the squares with the leaves behind, just like looking through a window Karen, and such pretty tones of green and blue, and the large sentiment looks great over the top. x
