One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #9 Reminder

Just a quick reminder; there’s still time to get your card in for the One Layer Christmas card challenge!

 As always, it’s an “Anything Goes” challenge, and the optional twist this time around is angels:

My background has been made using a stencil monoprint technique.  If you are interested in learning this technique you’ll find my step out and video tutorials here.  I’ve inked a stencil with three different shades of Distress Inks, misted it with water and pressed it onto my watercolor cardstock. Then I used another shade of Distress Ink with a different stencil over top of it.  Next, I flicked some water onto the cardstock to add a little more dimension.

Check out the beautiful inspiration from the rest of the Design Team right here.

Here’s what I used:
Paper;  Strathmore 140# watercolor
Ink:  Distress and Archival inks
Stamps:  Recollections and Verve Glad Tidings
All the other stuff:  TCW stencil, Stencil Girl stencil, sponge, water

Challenges entered:
Merry Monday #158:  stencils

Back soon with more my sweet friends.
