Making Waves - A Twofer


I got some stencils from the new range by Memory Box and decided that this wave stencil would be ideal for the Runway Inspired Challenge.



I taped the stencil down to the front of the card, then masked off so that I could do the orange (Spiced Marmalade) sweep, then masked that while I sponged the rest of the card blue (Salty Ocean with a bit of Faded Jeans around the edges).  Die cut birthday (Memory Box) and stamped "wishes" (Woodware).

I'm also entering it into Simon Says Monday Challenge, Anything Goes.

I made another card with the same stencil, this time in pinks for the ombré and stamping challenge at Craft Stamper:



From the top: Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet, Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick distress inks.

I'm adding it to the One Layer Simplicity Challenge but I think Susan might have palpitations at the lack of white space ;)

  23. THUD! That first card is truly a masterpiece of design and color. LOVE the pop of orange and the die cut curved to fit the wave. So dramatic and effective! The second card is softer on the color front, with three perfectly placed sequins and perfectly placed sentiment! Bravo! Thanks for playing the One-Layer Simplicity challenge again with these two beauties!!
