Hello everyone. Can you believe that we are at the end of September! I think that this year is both flying by and also going slower than a sloth. But any who onto the reason that you stopped by – my design team card. This time around we get to do some partial stenciling; I can hear you say what is that well below I have included a link to a Youtube video by Jennifer McGuire who explains.
And this is the card that I created after watching this video.
To make the star I got some copy paper and cut out the star with a die but kept the star for later use. I then temporarily adhered it to my main panel so that it wouldn’t move during the inking process. Next I chose a distress ink which was Mowed Lawn and used a Star stencil but I thought that it was a little sparse so then I chose a 2nd ink this time Wild Honey and a circle stencil.
When I took off the mask I didn’t like that the edges of the start weren’t really recognizable but this is where I used the star die cut and held it in place while sponging the edge with Black Soot Distress Ink. To finish off the card I used an Aussie Santa Die Cut from Paper Rose and a sentiment I’ve had for years. I am really pleased with how it all came together.
Thanks for stopping in and looking at my design team card for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. I hope that you will pop on over to the blog and see what the other designers have been up to. Before you go over there though I would love to leave you with this last thought for this post.
Until my next post,
Be kind to Yourself and Others.
