Less Is More #402 - One Layer Card using Stencils

Happy Saturday! Over at Less is More we have a brand new challenge for you and this fortnight we want you to create a one layer card using stencils.

Here are my cards

Card #1
First, I masked off an area to try and keep my design to just one third of the card. I used a star stencil and blended the colour using distress ink then stamped the sentiment.

Card #2
I created a stencil using alphabet dies. Once I placed my stencil on my card, I used distress inks for the colours and a simple sentiment to finish it off.

Our wonderful sponsor for this month is

Card #2 - Archi-scraps (Music), Lavinia Challenges (Anything Goes), Little Red Wagon (Music or Songs) The Paper Players (CAS cards for kids)
