AAA Cards | Game #127

Pencils coloured images stand out brightly on a non-white card stock. While a combination of coloured and crisp white background adds a greater depth to a one layer Clean and Simple card. A simple tool offers a solution.

Hello Everybody!

Today I am sharing a one-layer card with pencils coloured flowers and partially ink blended background.

This card is inspired by AAA Cards Challenge #127 and we challenge you to make a card to share kindness.
To make this card I started with stamping down a poppy and a bud from Pure Poppies stamps set in a very light ink and covering them with masks.

Then I masked the edge of the card panel with low tack Purple Tape and blended two shades of Distress inks through Bubbles Stencil.

To achieve this soft blended background look I repositioned the stencil a few times, layering bubbles over and over.

This stencil helps to create an amazing background easily. I suggest starting with a very light ink and use the bigger bubbles. Then gradually increase the colour saturation and use an area with smaller openings.


Next I removed all the masks and coloured the flower and the bud with pencils.

The sentiment from Clear Decorated Wishes - mixed add-on ( CRT ) is stamped in black archival ink for crisp impression.

I dry embossed the border with a scoring board along the stencilled area to create a raised frame.

To finish off the card I glued the panel to a black card note.
