Sometimes less is more... that is a popular saying that I rarely follow. I seem to follow the " everything but the kitchen sink" school of design. This is the origional stenciled image that morphed into a different card yesterday. The stencil is 6x6 and once I colored it, I did not know how to use it on a card. I ended up making a color print at 75% size which I turned into a different card. When I woke up this morning I was in a rare minimalist mood and just trimmed the image a little and stuck it on a card - no ribbon, dp, or bling. The image was made by lightly sponging distress inks on the cardstock. Then I taped the stencil down and added several layers of distress ink to get more intense colors. I sponged a little black ink to add depth. Before removing the stencil I splattered water on it. Once I removed the stencil I added shadows to the trees with grey copics.

I'm still in awe that you create late it night, in the middle of the night, before work and on your lunch hour and produce cards as beautiful as THIS one is! The colors are glorious! I now will be on a hunt for that stencil, Francie! Just beautiful!
