Grateful – Vellum Leaf with Plaid

   Hi! I’m here with a card inspired by several fun Fall Challenges.img_3724_edited-1

I created the plaid background by first masking off the center third.img_3742_edited-1 Then, I repeatedly masked off the top and bottom third (taping over the masked-off center as well) and sponging on ink.img_3747_edited-1 I love using this technique.

I used ColourQ’s colors, but missed the link up! UGH.

Just for You -1-layer

Hi! I’m here today with a one-layer stencil card.

If this design looks familiar it might be because I made a mistake! I made a card for LAST week’s CTS today! 😦

I loved Leigh’s sketch and wasn’t paying attention. Oh well! I still love how it turned out. 🙂

Here’s a short slideshow of the process I used to make this card:

I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to stamp the Morning Glories. The leaves are a blend of Peeled Paint/Evergreen Bough. I used Broken China, Barn Door and Scattered Straw for the flowers.
