Hi all! It's a Public Holiday here in New Zealand today so I took the opportunity to make a card for a few challenges. The Paper Players have a one layer card challenge, Krafty Chicks is All Occasions. I'm playing along with the Anything Goes challenge at Seize the Birthday and I chose Colouring/Flowers/Metallic for Tic Tac Toe.
It's been a while since I made a one layer card and I wanted to give the impression of layers, so I used gold foiling and a masking stencil to achieve that look.
The card looks a bit meh from this angle so I took lots of photos trying to capture that shine from the gold foil. To make the card, I firstly stamped the floral image in black ink onto a white card base. I then used a rectangle mask to make off the outside edges before stenciling through the centre with the co-ordinating layering stencils. I am hoping layering stencils counts as colouring for the Tic Tac Toe challenge. I have just succumbed and bought a few Catherine Pooler inks so I tried to find some matching colours for this card. Now to collect the rest...
Once I was finished with the colouring, I removed the masking stencil and then went looking for something to frame the image. I found a hot foil frame that fit perfectly so with crossed fingers for no over-foiling, I foiled it onto the image. I then added the sentiment using the same gold foil.
Thanks so much for visiting!
