At The Alphabet Challenge we have reached the letter ‘N’, and Veronika has chosen the theme of ‘No Layers’. None. Zilch, Zip. Nada………
Here is my card:
I have taken a liking to stencils, particularly layering stencils. I struggle with them – I usually get some black ink on the layers somewhere – whether or not I’ve used black ink. Goodness knows where it comes from. And usually one of the colours I use ends up in the wrong place – handy for sequin placement – but this time I couldn’t use one due to being one layer.
I recently attended another virtual crafting weekend, and one of those classes was using a layering stencil, but also masking parts of that stencil to use different colours…..so I thought I’d try with this one from Simon Says Stamp.
I also decided I like to use Distress inks for smaller openings, and Distress Oxides for larger areas.
This particular stencil involved quite a bit of masking to get the different colours on the leaves and petals -those small sticky note arrow thingies work well for that – and small blender brushes too.
Hopefully you can join us in our new challenge – no layers. I look forward to seeing your creations. xx
