Perfectly CAS - February 2020 Challenge

Good evening

The February challenge over at Perfectly CAS is just launching and here's this month's cue card...

For some reason I chose to make a one layer card (I don't know why either!) and I opted to use a stencil featuring a triangular design for my sample card this time, one that is fairly new to my stash and not yet used.

I masked off a section and just ink blended through part of it.  I used three shades of Distress Ink and faded these out to follow the decreasing triangles.  I then stamped the sentiment and added the dots either side using just part of a stamp.  I thought I'd broken the rules here but after measuring the width of the stencilled area, it's exactly one third of the card width!  And I allowed a little leeway for my sentiment :D 

Materials used:
  • Stencil: Clearly Besotted - Triangle Fade
  • Ink: Distress Ink - Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Stamps: Altenew - Beautiful Lady; Skull and Cross Buns - Planner Banner

Challenge entries:

Seize the Birthday - Challenge #183 - Anything Goes / White Space
