Yellow Hello!

Another fun card from the things I learned in the Stenciled! class.  This time I colored my embossing paste with Wild Honey Distressed Ink pad.  I used Tim Holtz Bubble stencil.  To me, the stencil looked like honeycomb.  I love the contrast of yellow and black.  Very Striking.

And I have a confession, I actually purchased the burlap recently.  I have disgressed!  But that's all the embellishment I've purchased in a year.  I just could not resist.  It came in 5.5in width x 1 yard.  So the damage is minimal.  I just love texture!

I am so very glad I took this Stenciled! class.  I've learned so much not only from the teachers but the other students.  Their creations are just beautiful.  I look forward to taking other online classes.  The next one is one layer cards.  And now it comes full circle in my stamping life.  I started 20 years ago with one layer cards.  It was a big deal to have texture/patterned paper on the card!  Funny how so much as changed.

I am entering this into Card Concept Challenge #2.  I would call this a clean and layered, or is it a clean and simple card? It's a bit confusing even though Lesley did try to explain it.  They are encouraging us to use texture, and that I have done no matter what style it is.

Thanks for stopping by!       Traci
