Muse and Virginia's View Too!
Just had to play a little more with some homemade stencils and my new Altenew stamps. I stopped by Muse and saw Therese's amazing card and knew that I had to play along. I was inspired by her fade-away background and bold banner. Over at Virginia's View it is all about stencils; I made another stencil using a transparency and PTI's hexagon coverplate die.
On the first card, I sponged the background with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I then stamped the sentiment in Versfine on Vellum - I love this new set from Altenew. If you haven't checked them out you must. I wrapped the vellum banner around the card and popped it up on dimensionals. When I was finished, I wasn't sure if I liked - I think maybe the background looks too washed out. So, I decided to do a second version.
This time I sponged with Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn and Broken China Distress inks. I stamped the sentiment in the same way as the last card, but clear embossed the it so I wouldn't have to worry about it smudging. I framed it in black and adhered it to the cardbase. Now, I am not sure which I like better. It is amazing to me that a few changes can make such a difference.
Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think!
