Welcome to a new challenge at Make the Cards Challenge! This week we are having a two things challenge, to use a stenciled background and a die cut sentiment. Originally I though this would be one of the easiest challenges yet……until I decided to make this card while traveling! I grabbed a few crafty things while packing, thinking I could easily create a few cards on the road. Let’s just say that I am extremely spoiled with having a craft room. I have not crafted on the go in years and it shows! I did grab everything to create this card, minus the die cut sentiment! I did cut the sentiment, but it is obviously still sitting on my desk at home! Six stores later, I found a lovely scrapbook store that hooked me up with a die cut machine. If you ever find yourself in Allen, TX…I highly recommend stopping into the Personal Scrapbook store. They have a nice selection of items to choose from and the service is awesome!
To create my card, I did a reverse stenciled background. I started with a panel of White Daisy cardstock, the smooth surface is perfect for creating with Distress Oxide inks. I sponged on Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. I then sprayed my stencil with a light water mist and laid it on top of the background. I let the stencil sit for a minute before removing. The water mist reacts with the distress oxide ink, leaving your stenciled design. Super easy and a totally different look from your normal stenciled backgrounds. A layered hello sentiment from Lawn Fawn finishes off the card. This card was truly created with minimal supplies!
