Seize The Birthday - Tall & Skinny


It's challenge time at Seize The birthday, and for this challenge the topping is tall and skinny cards.  I folded a 8¼ piece of square card to make my tall and skinny card.  I taped this gorgeous stencil from Loll and using a fineliner, drew half the outline of each shape to create an illusion of depth.  A quick peek under the stencil showed that the illusion wasn't quite enough, so I enhanced the lines with a Tombow pen.  Another quick peek showed that it still wasn't quite enough, so I sponged Weathered Wood Distress ink over the stencil, then I was happy with it.

Get your tall and skinny cards out and come and join us, or just join in the Anything Goes birthday theme.
