Take Care

Hi everyone.  More fun playing with Distress Oxides and stenciling.  This is another card with layered stencils.  The CAS Mix Up challenge is open for a few more days. Hope you'll join us if you haven't already.


Three stencils were used on the panel.  Started out by smooshing a background of purple and red.  Then added more red by stenciling through a mini dot stencil.  Next a pretty star and circle shaped stencil was used on opposite corners with more purple.  Last, the bird was sponged through a stencil in dark brown.  I stamped a little bit of script over the bird and heat embossed in liquid platinum to give him a lift ... he was looking rather flat just the one colour. :)

I added a backing panel that was 1/2" longer so I could stamp my sentiment.  This card was sent to a friend's husband who was in a terrible skiing accident.  Wanted to let him know I was thinking of him.  Thankfully his recovery has been going well.

Thanks for coming by!
