Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is to use stencils, or create our own stencil using die cuts. I went with the easy choice, using the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks. I used them last week for the plaid theme, and liked it so much that this week I'm using the tile looking mask!
I started with blending Soft Sea Foam onto the card base through the mask in a random manner - lighter in some areas and darker in others. It's subtle, but if you click for a closer view you can see it. Then on a scrap of Soft Sea Foam cardstock I used the same ink with the mask. It was then cut with the Deckled Rectangles Die and adhered to the card base.
The floral image was stamped on Basic White with Basic Gray ink, then the outside of the image was highlighted with a Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blend. The leaves were colored with Old Olive and the flower with Daffodil Delight and lightly shadowed with Light Smoky Slate. After die cutting it was adhered with dimensionals over some Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding Ribbon. The greeting was stamped with Memento ink and pearls were added to complete the card.
That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.
