As fall is approaching in many area, the California bay area is just starting to really get some warm weather, it has been in the 80's and 90's this week, sure has felt good. I'm starting to think about the holiday cards now but here is one last tribute to summer that I will be teaching in a class I have coming up. The stencil I used is call the Hibiscus pair (LL478) and one of my favorite stencils. It is great for using with the Faux Crosstitch technique that I will be teaching in class. I started with a plain green notecard and added a couple of papers that coordinated with each other for the background. In this case the papers came from BoBunny's Barefoot and Bliss. I taped my stencil to white cardstock and then added light background colors with a stencil brush in this case light yellow and green, I then gently lifted the stencil and inserted the faux cross stitch screen underneath the stencil. Now I start adding darker color to give it the cross stitch look. I used one of the darker colors around the edge of the card and mounted it to a yellow layer of cardstock and popped it off the card. This card is simple, clean and easy.
Make sure to take a tour of what the other dream team designers have done this week and don't forget to come back next week.
