Today I am sharing a card for LIM
where Chrissie , Jen and Anne have offered us a challenge, they say,
As ever on the third Saturday of each month we have a theme for you.
This time it is for you to use
MASKING OR STENCILLING
on your creations.
OLS Challenge Rules
l. A one -layer card is defined as a single layer of cardstock folded in half. No other layers of paper are allowed.
2. Make a card that uses water sprayed or applied onto an image or create a background using water to blend. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.
I made 2 :D
Two stencils in this first card, the background for the sentiment was stenciled with distress then I added water. Next I placed the border stencil on the card getting the positive image. The semicircles are from the other stencil and just inked through straight onto the card.
The sentiment is by Waltzingmouse 'Big Day Today'
Circular stencil, TCW 'Mini And So On'
Border stencil, Special Touch of... 'Elegance'
I sponged the distress inks through the stencil and stamped the berries over the top. Using a waterbrush I moved the ink around the image to soften the contrast between the light and shadow on the berries.
This card uses
Tim Holtz Layering Stencil, 'Shatter'
Stamps by Chapel road Art stamps 'Thistle'
Sentiment stamp, Lindsay Mason, Love that Binds
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the week, hugs Gay x
