The LIM challenge for this week is 'Masking or Stencilling' and this is my offering. Now I'm not sure which category it fits into but I suppose you could call the lilac bit stencilling and the central white bit masking but who knows??
I started with a piece of copy paper and cut out an aperture using one of the Apothecary Accents dies, this was then fixed to a piece of Whisper White cardstock using repositionable snail. The central piece was done by cutting a mask from a post-it note with another die from the same set and stuck onto the Whisper White. Once these were in place I sponged inside the stencil using Wisteria Wonder ink. After removing the stencil and the mask I did some paper piercing around the shape using a template from the Essentials Pack. The panel was matted onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock and then onto a card blank.
The central flower is from Petite Petals stamped in Elegant Eggplant and punched with the co-ordinating punch whilst the small flowers are a stamp from Banner Blast punched with an Itty Bitty Shapes punch. A sentiment from Sassy Salutations and some pearls from my stash finished the card.
A big thank you to the ladies at LIM for showcasing my 'Yellow & Green' card this week, I really appreciate it x
Before I go this is what the stencil and mask looked like (after I'd sponged) as I'm not too good with the explanations!!
Have a great weekend
