Less Is More Challenge #443 begins today. We are challenged to make a Clean and Simple card that features our favorite technique.
It is hard to choose one technique that is my favorite, but I certainly do love to stencil, so that is the technique I chose. To create my card, I used the Shimmering Rays Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs and four Distress Oxide inks in orange hues: Dried Marigold, Carved Pumpkin, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey. I then stamped the center with an image from SSS Flip Flop Season, and embossed it with clear EP. I then put the stencil back in place and applied Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel to give the rays sparkle and shine.
I needed a retirement card for a man friend, and this will work wonderfully. I am certainly 100% happy that he is going out at the top of his game, and I hope he has a long and healthy new chapter ahead of him with the Jersey Shore and Florida sun shining down on him!
