Smile... It's All Good

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

Yes, this is a departure from my Online Card Class today...I'm in the process of re-organizing my little studio and just decided to do a quick card for the color challenge over at Splitcoast.  I love this color, white and pool party (or a reasonable facsimile).  And, for dessert...stenciling. I loves me a good stencil *grin*.

Decided to use the rough side of the water color texture don't you think?  Just a simple stencil with a bit of ink to mimic the pool party color, then I flicked some water on it so there are little dribbles here and there.

The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory...and of course, it's finished with the obligatory smattering of sequins.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Distress Water Color paper and SU! Basic Black
Ink:  Hero Hues Black and Salty Ocean Distress Ink
Stamps:  Mama Elephant Everyday Greetings
All the other stuff:  Memory Box Leaf and Berry stencil, baker's twine, sequins, button, adhesive
