Happy Tuesday, hope all of you are having a great week so far! I am heading out to lunch with one of my best friends shortly but wanted to share this card that I created using another of my recent purchases from Fred She Said. This is from Tracey's set Old Truck which has color and outline images plus lots more goodies.
I used one of the color images which is in JPEG format and since I wanted to cut the image out I used the free form option on my knife tool in my Silhouette software, cut the image and then traced it to cut. Love this feature! Seems like I learn something new each day with this machine. Love it!
I watched a video by Tracey the other day using some of her stencil cut files and I wanted to give this a try so I cut her honeycomb stencil out of clear card stock. It takes a bit of time as I cut it on the slowest setting but so worth it as I will have this to use for a long time. I labeled the stencil with the name and punched a hole in the surrounding plastic and am able to put it with my other stencils.
Here is a link to the video if you would like to see how this is done. I used Gelatos (neutrals) for my background, placed the stencil down and wiped with the baby wipe to remove some of the color. I can see so many possibilities and will be sure to try again on another project soon. After letting the bg dry, I added distressing around the edges with distress ink in rusty hinge and walnut stain. The sentiment is from a set by Inkadinkado. Here is a close up of that layer. I added Flower Soft in Autumn to the flowers.
While visiting my friend Olga's blog I came across the challenge blog Cardabilities and thought I would take a peek. By the way, Olga will be on their design team the next quarter! Yeah for her!
This is this week's sketch and what I used for inspiration.
Be sure to stop by at both Olga's and Cardabilities, lots of eye candy.
Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your visits and comments.
Now off to get ready for my girl time and good food.
