Gate Wide Open

Good Morning
Today's card is a fun one.
It features 2 new stencils from A Colorful Life Designs called

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I placed a piece of white cardstock onto my Make Art Station and then put the Gate Wide Open stencil over that.  
  • I inked the dog with some Rusty Hinge Distress Oxide ink and a bit of the Black Soot and splattered the dog with my white Posca pen.
  • This stencil comes with a mask for the dog, so I first removed the stencil and placed the mask over the dog before adding the next stencil I wanted for the background.
  • I placed the Classic Circus stencil over top of the dog and then inked with some Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and some Shaded Lilac DOX ink.
  • I removed that stencil and placed the Gate Wide Open stencil back in place to add the sentiment with some Black Soot DOX ink.
  • I added a white dot to the middle of the circles on the card front with my white Posca pen.
  • I glued the dried panel onto a piece of blue cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.

Here are the stencils I used:
