Challenge Time!! Club Scrap and Freshly Made Sketches.

Well I have not been doing challenges the last few months.  Seems like life and all the fuss that goes with it, kept me from meeting the deadlines. Oh well.  This month, I am armed and ready to meet the challenge.  I will be using this months Kit from CLUB SCRAP,  Office Space.

  Here is my entry for sketch #244.

This is a simple and easy card.  The hard part was figuring out how to get it to all fit on the A2card Base.

Let me show you how I created this.

I started by stamping in Brown Ink and Heat embossing in Clear to give it a shine.  Then I added the word, "memorandum" in Black Archival.

Stamped and cut out a mask to cover my stamped image.

Placed my stencil over the image and taped down.  Using Distress Ink and an Ink Blending tool, softly added Tattered Rose to the stencil.  Then I went back with Spiced Marigold to darken a few of the words.  

Stencil removed.  Next step is to remove the mask and die cut it into an Oval shape.

From the Card stock in the kit, I cut a mat and then using the coral cardstock created an A2 card base.  

Last, I stamped the sentiment in the same Brown Ink and heat embossed with Clear embossing powder, die, cut and mounted it onto my card with 3D Foam Squares.  Done!!  Clean and Simple.
I am thinking this month I am going to focus on stencils!!
Until next time,
Happy Crafing,
