Stenciled Spring

The release party challenge Thursday night by Gina K. Designs was to use two different pattern papers together to create a card. I decided this afternoon to try and make a design with that in mind and used images from the Stenciled Spring stamp set which I was lucky enough to win in a grab bag from Gina K. Designs.


I did my best to match Spectrum Noir Aqua pens with the colors used in the papers. This was as close as I could get. And, since this is a solid type image I colored directly onto the stamp and while it was still moist I stamped it on the white card stock.

I cut the center pattern paper on a diagonal and then added the other pattern paper design on each side. Next I lined it with a black oval before I added it to the white card base. I added some of the blanket stitched design die cuts from the Cheery Lynn Designs Allison's Ribbons along the adjoining edges. I thought this looked a bit more decorative and sort of reminded me of a quilt pattern.

The stamped image was then cut with an oval die from Cheery Lynn Designs and then layered onto a larger oval die in black. I then popped this over the center of the card. The finishing touch was to add some black pearls to the center of each flower.


Well, two cards done today. But I confess one of them was started already last night. But now it is time to put my toys away for awhile. I sort of think hubby would appreciate me making something for the evening meal instead of more cards. LOL

You have a great evening and I hope your weekend is wonderful too!

God bless,
Verna
