The Less is More Challenge #282 is: use a stencil.
So for my card I made a stencil with a Tim Holtz/Sizzix die (660220). I cut it twice from some printer paper so it would cover the whole front of the card.
I then sponged through Distress inks with the mini blending tool in a rainbow order ( candied apple, carved pumpkin, squeezed lemonade, twisted citron, mowed lawn, mermaid lagoon and wilted violet).
I covered them with Perfect Pearls to give it shimmer, you can't see much of in the photo :-(
I diecut a butterfly from Joy! crafts from black cardstock backed with stick it.
I then took my Versamark marker to add some Lindsy's stamp gang embossing powder (imperial crown purple
I also diecut the Simon Says Stamp painted hello from the same black cardstock with Stick it.
Cut the panel slightly smaller than the cardfront and adhered it with tape runner.
If I had used a thicker cardstock I could have used the leftover stencil as a card too, but it's too flimsy now.
I've been really busy in my allotment garden,
weeds everywhere! too much rain then sun and heat made it all explode! So last week I skipped almost all the challenges I usually take part in and this week I had to choose. But look what I made yesterday with all homegrown produce (english cucumber, peas, haricot verts, green and red pepper and garlic) and store cupboard stuff like pasta and pesto.
