My son, Adam, celebrated his 16th birthday on the 14th. We are having family over this Saturday to celebrate. I made this card for him:
I tried a second time by leaving the slick surface on and taping the stencil to it. Then I took a craft knife and cut through the protective nonsticky surface, tracing the design of the stencil. I then had to peel each little piece off and cover it with the colors I wanted to use. This took a lot longer, but turned out alot better.
The base card is white cardstock that I colored around with colored pencil and blended with Gambit Mineral Spirits. I just used some paper that I had at home for the layers. I attached ribbon and the sentiment (which is also done with the pencils and blending technique). The sentiment was cut out using a punch from EK Success. Use It Tuesday wants you to use things that you have had for a while. Everything here is stuff that I've had for a long time. The background papers are from Creative Memories and I have had them for probably at least 5 years.
This card is going into the following challenges:
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!
