I have started to play with the gorgeous Build a Banner Simply Created Kit to make a Christmas Banner for an upcoming class. While I had the chevron mask out I thought I would use it on a card.
I found some spray adhesive at Spotlight (Australia) which says if you only spray it on the back of the stencil, it will be repositionable and it really works. So I attached the chevron stencil to Whisper White card and used a sponge and Coastal Cabana ink to decorate the lower half of the card. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Sassy Salutations stamp set onto the top right hand corner of the Whisper White card using Smoky Slate ink. Then to mask the top edge of the sponging I wrapped it with Smoky Slate 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon. This Whisper White card is attached to scored and folded Coastal Cabana card. I cut Smoky Slate card with the Little Leaves Sizzlet and attached them to the card front. I stamped the flower from the Flower Shop stamp set onto Whisper White card using Strawberry Slush ink, punched it using the Pansy Punch and attached it to the card front over the leaves.
I attached the chevron mask to a narrow piece of Whisper White card and sponged on Coastal Cabana ink. I punched one long edge of Smoky Slate card using the Scallop Trim Border Punch and attached it behind the top edge of the sponged Whisper White card. I attached this to another piece of Whisper White card and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card. I stamped another flower using Strawberry Slush ink, punched it out and attached it over the lower left hand corner.
I think, in hindsight, I should have left edge of the Smokey Slate card plain. I think it would make a better contrast to the chevron pattern.
I am loving these masks – all sorts of ideas come to mind to use them.
