Sending Sunshine


Hello, I am back today with more blended backgrounds and palm trees. This time I used a fun new stencil from MFT called Watercolor Wash Rectangle. I didn’t want the stencil to take up the entire card front so I shortened it a bit by using the negative that came in the package as you can see below.

After I had removed the stencil, I realized I had forgotten to add a beach for my palm tree to sit on. So, so much for shortening it. LOL, I put everything back in place and wanted to leave some white between the water and the sand and after I was done and removed the stencil I realized I had a gap in the stencil on the sides. However, I really love the way it looks and I call that a happy accident. You will see on the card below that I didn’t make that mistake and the stencil continues with no break.

I am linking up with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and using the middle row of Any Color, Free, CAS. I will also be linking up over on IG with the #SSSIChallenge to make a scene. And I must not forget about Darnell over at NBUS, as my stencil is brand new.

If you are in the States, I hope you have a wonderful 4th! Take care, Nanc’
