It is a lovely sunny day here leading up to the Easter weekend. I hope you are enjoying some spring sunshine too :)
There is a new challenge over at A Blog Named Hero to use layers/dimension on your card.
I didn't need more of an excuse to get my stencils and embossing paste out - everyone is going mad for stencils at the moment! I love the range of techniques that you can use with them from embossing paste to inking, spraying, dry embossing....they are a very cost effective way to add texture and interest to your cards. And there are so many fab stencils coming on to the market at the moment so there is a lot of choice :)
Here is the card that I made for the challenge:
I used Hero Arts number stencil with white paste and then covered it with silver glitter - it is a party on a card! I stamped a white tag with HA's Tiny Flags in Wet Cement and then covered with a vellum tag on which I silver embossed the sentiments from the set called Yay!. I silver embossed the main sentiment on white card. I really like all of the silvers and greys and figure there are about 5 layers on this card including the grey mat, embossed card, two layer tag and main sentiment!!
I will also play along with two other challenges with this card - Virginia's View Challenge #2 and the Hero Arts Sketch Challenge using Sketch #2.
I hope you will check out the DT's cards for the Layer Cake Challenge - remember there is a prize from our great sponsor, Simon Says Stamp!
See you over at ABNH!
