Whotcha doin?

Did you ever send a card to somebody only to say hello? Or to ask hey, howdee? Why do we always need a reason like birthdays, new year, or Valentine. I made a card just to drop saying: hey whotcha doin?

First I used a simple white card stock and coloured it with Tattered Angels simple sheers (sweet violet and very purple).

Loved that purples. I used Stampers Anonymous texture stamps (SCF 006 and CMS 125) with archival ink to add some stamped texture.

Next I used a harlequin stencil with texture paste to add even some dimensional texture.

That point I took my card and I was beginning to play with my background, I cut it, distressed the edge, added more colour to the dimensional stencilled texture with distress ink (seedless preserves), and layered them.

I stamped Buru from Stampotique originals on a white card stock and coloured him. I added him to my layered card.

Finally I added my “whotcha coin?” stamp on an apart white card stock.

So don’t forget to drop a card in the post from time to time, no special reason needed and still you show your interest in your friend, acquaintances or family!

I am sharing it with Craft Stamper’s Take it Make it february challenge: stencilling.

  8. Your layers each stand out without dominating over the other.
