Hello! Earlier this month, I shared a card using the new Ceiling Tile stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. You can see that post HERE. I really love this large stencil, so I wanted to use it again right away. This time, I decided to offset the center of the stencil.

I pulled out a scrap that had leftover ink from the Layered Party stencil. If you look closely, you can see the sprinkles. So there was already a nice wash of color on the paper, and this helped me to choose what other colors I’d use for this card. I inked the focal flower with Villainous Potion Distress Ink and faded it into Twisted Citron. I wanted some shine, so I flicked on some Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Gold.
I inked up an older sentiment stamp from Gina K Designs with VersaFine Clair Ink in Monarch. This panel was pretty small, so I matted it with a peachy colored cardstock before applying it to my white card base. I actually kept the base white, and didn’t add additional colors for once.
This is a nice all-occasion card that uses a background that you may not love, or doesn’t have quite enough happening on it. Using a stencil that has large negative spaces allows the background to kind of fade back, but still be visible enough to be more “exciting” than just a plain background.
