OCC: Stenciled - Okay, One More
I made one more card for my Stenciled Online Card Classes homework:
This time I sponged ink through a stencil, and I both offset it and flipped it over. The colors are Pale Tomato and Butter Bar. I was hoping to get Orange in the middle, and I did, partly because I didn't bother to clean the stencil between colors. I also on purpose made the colors lighter as I worked my way to the bottom of the card.
See how the orange triangles aren't perfectly aligned? I totally meant to do that! I kinda like the flecks of white showing.
The sentiment is stamped in Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black ink and clear embossed. I trimmed off the right edge of the top layer so I could add a strip of black washi tape to cut all the color and to coordinate with the black sentiment. I thought there were too many sharp corners, so I used my 1/8" Corner Chomper on the edges of the sentiment, top layer and card base.
I liked this class a lot. I think you'll see some of the techniques incorporated in future cards here. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
