Hello, how are you?

Hi there, Nicole here with a rainbow card that says "Hello, how are you?"

When I started making cards, I had just a few stencils and did not know what to do with them but now, many years later, I just love playing with them. So I wanted to make a card using this Huge Polka Dots Stencil.

I also got inspired by a YouTube video by Cathy Zielske

  • put some masking tape on your panel 

  • lay your stencil on top and stick it to your working surface with some washi tape

  • start ink blending with a light hand

  • remove the stencil and the masking tape

  • stamp a large greeting over the gap between the two ink blended parts

  • decorate the card with small stamps and twine 

  • gridlines on your work surface are super helpful to put on the masking tape straight
  • some of the colors would turn into a muddy brown when mixing them, so that's where the masking tape does a wonderful job by keeping them apart.
