After stamping the image in black, it was Distress watercoloured in bright, fun colours.

Less is More – Happy Birthday

Happy Saturday everyone. It’s time for a new challenge over at LIM. The challenge is to create using the theme: Masculine.

My card today used up left overs from previous cards. A real bonus!

It features stamped Darkroom Door – Arty Mosiac, 3 times. First with black embossing on white, second with white embossing on black and lastly white embossing on kraft (the inside of a coffee box- I love the colour! :)).

After cutting the sections, some had foam attached to change the height. They were then placed on the card front to form a pattern I was happy with, along with a scrap of black card from my scrap box.

The sentiment is from MFT – Celebrate with Cake stamp set.

I had fun creating the background for this card.

To begin a panel was ink blended using Distress inks.

The MFT – Funky Florals stencil was sprayed lightly with water and placed waterside down onto the panel. Allow it to sit so the water can transfer onto the panel removing some of the colour.

Such a pretty look and so easy! I lightly sprayed with Glimmer Mist to give a little shine.

After trimming, the panel had silver ink edged before adding to a blue card and then the white card front.

The MFT – die cut Thanks was cut fom glitter cardstock and added to the front.
