{Spotlight Project} Deepti Creates a Quick and Pretty Card in 3 Easy Steps!



Hello, friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. Today I am showcasing a fun way to create layers with stamps and stencils :) An easy technique resulting in a quick and pretty card!

So, here's a look ar the finished card:


STEP 1
I started out by creating a mask of the flower and stamping it with black ink to cover the right and the lower edge of the panel.




STEP 2
Then I laid the stencil over this panel and sponged with Distress inks, keeping the red at the base and gradually changing it to yellow.



STEP 3
Then I heat embossed the sentiment on a black banner and adhered it all together. Easy peasy!



Here's the finished card again:



That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try. Happy paper crafting!
