OCC Holiday 2014 Day 4: One Layer Cards

OCC Holiday 2014:  Day 4 One Layer Cards

OCC HOLIDAY 2014:  DAY 4 — ONE LAYER CARDS

First, technically this isn’t a one layer card.  I forgot to mask off the snowmen before I started to in the background so I had to cut them out and glue on the card.  I  would have loved to start this over again but I just got the stencil late this afternoon.

Kudos to Simon Says Stamps for shipping my order in 3 days even with a holiday!

Things I learned:

1.  PLAN AHEAD.

2.  MASK before using the stencil.  The green at the upper right corner is from the tree stencil that was too close to the edge of the stencil — should have masked what I didn’t want colored..

3.  Stamp the sentiment first before placing the characters.

I should probably know all this by now . . .

Supplies:

Stamps:  Amuse

Stencil:  Simon Says Stamps — Falling Snow and Christmas scene.

Inks:  Hero Arts Soft Stone Shadow ink, Simon Says Stamp– Green Leaf
