OCC: Stenciled I. Can't. Stop.
I needed a quick generic card this morning, and I ... used a stencil. I know, I know, but there was one more technique I'd wanted to try, and the stencil was still out, and ... I made this:
I wanted to use Hero Arts' new Vanilla ink as one of the two colors, but it's only ordered and not yet arrived, so I used Soft Sand instead. Ya know, I kinda like it. :)
At first I hesitated using black for the stamped dots, but now I think I really like the stark contrast. I even played it up by adding a black layer and die-cut sentiment.
The sentiment actually disappeared into the busy background, so I cut a strip of white card stock to help break it up. I made it shorter than the taller letters on purpose since I thought a wider strip would be too much. It's popped up on foam adhesive, and I'm really happy with it!
Now I need to send this off with the package. Hopefully I'll put away these stencils now and do something else. Maybe. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
