Happy Mothers' Day with stencils

Hi all, it's Ann here just in time for Mothers' Day with a very quick and easy card, using a stencil to create the focal point.

As you can see, I've used various sized triangles and a simple layout to showcase the lovely colours of Distress Oxides - Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron and Wilted Violet.

My tip when using stencils, is to clean off each colour each time you apply it to the card front - it is incredibly easy to smudge inks when using this technique.

The sentiment was stamped using the Misti, to aid in correct placement and also to get a very clear impression with such a bold font.  I chose the sentiment from Altenew's Stunning Cosmos as it complements the simple design so well.

My white panel is popped up using fun foam onto a purple card base - this card will go to my daughter-in-law - I hope purple is still her favourite colour!

By the way, I have a couple more cards using this stencil on my blog, so please pop by and take a look!
