Stencilled one layer shells.


Hi everyone, I'm back with another card as party guest at Seize the Birthday.
I've gone with the toppings option this time, one layer. But you can always play along with anything goes birthday.



I very rarely make one layer cards, it's way out of my comfort zone lol!

 I wanted to try something other than stamping so I used a sponge dauber to add distress ink with this stencil, then added some white prismacolor pencil to try and give some shading. 
Not sure if I'm totally happy with my efforts, but I had fun trying this!

I'm also linking up to the 3rd birthday celebrations at AAA Cards, congratulations!


Supplies:
Dreamweaver shells stencil; distress inks; prismacolor pencil; stately embossing folder;
sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
