In anticipation of taking another on line class about CAS One Layer cards from On Line Classes, I decided to play with any idea that popped into my head the other night. The last class I took from them was all about using stencils and after taking it, of course I had to buy some more stencils. They are very reasonable and fun to design with. I have to admit I have a hard time designing one layer cards. I do CAS easily, but I usually add a layer or two and dimension to my cards. But I am taking the course to learn some new techniques from the fantastic designers who teach the classes and I can always use the ideas on layered cards as well.
Anyway, the idea I had was to use the painter's tape technique with a stencil. I started with a white card base and a Heidi Swapp stencil. I pushed my painters tape into an aqua blue ink and placed over the holes in the stencil for a distressed look. I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, the circle from Hero Arts and the blobs from Precious Remembrance. I think I like it- but I expect I will like the cards more after I take the class, and will definitely be sharing here with you.
I am entering this card in the Spots or Dots challenge at Crafty Sentiments and the Anything Goes challenge at Through the Craft Room Door.
