I had fun with these two colors, although I have to admit I usually use them with Christmas cards. This time around though, I used some new stencils I just received from Pinkfresh Studio...Daisy Wreath and Argyle and came up with this Hello card:
I used the Argyle stencil first and just stenciled very lightly in Smokey Slate ink the upper third of my panel. Next I stenciled right over the Argyle with the 5 part Daisy Wreath stencils, using the Smokey Slate and Basic Gray inks for the leaves, and Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, and Basic Gray for the flowers.
To add a bit more definition between the Argyle and the Daisy Wreath I added a slim strip of Basic Gray cardstock where the Argyle ended. I matted this layer with another piece of Basic Gray cardstock and adhered both to a top folding white card base. For my sentiment I used Pinkfresh Studio's Sentiment suite: hello die which I cut twice with Basic Gray and white cardstock and offset them so it would stand stand out a bit. I finished with a few clear sequins and love how it turned out!
