I have been happy with all my cards this week, but this one is almost literally the icing on the cake. I really wanted to stretch my limit with this challenge from Moxie Fab World:
To create this, I used a Heidi Swapp stencil, taped down. I only did the top part at first because this is a large card, and even the 6x6 stencil did not cover the whole thing. I mashed three Distress Inks – Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed, and Salty Ocean – on my craft sheet, and mixed the molding paste one at a time, then applying the color, then mixing another one. I recommend working fast because you don’t want your paste to dry on the stencil, and also because it will be harder to lift the stencil without ripping the paper.
I came back to do the lower part (which is more Salty Ocean + Dusty Concord), and the sentiment (which is a die cut colored in copics and a stamp). Oh and add a crapload of sequins!
A close up because who doesn’t love happy rainbow colors!
Thanks for visiting me, have a HAPPY Friday!!
ETA: As you can see my pal Tania commented that I should add this to some other stencil challenges, thank you for letting me know about them! Virginia’s View (I forgot she started a blog just for the challenge which makes sense now as to why I didn’t see it) and Keep It Simple (never participated in this before, so yay)
