Hello There


Hi, everyone, back today to share another card I made for MFT’s May Release. One Way Chevron is a great way to make an eye-catching background no matter what you do with it.

I decided to use it for a rainbow background and added a focal point that would compliment but not overwhelm the background. I started with a
Sweet Tooth card stock base and added some narrow strips of Black Licorice card stock down each outside edge. Then on a piece of Ranger Watercolor Paper, I stenciled Peerless Watercolors with a small waterbrush and allowed it to dry befor splattering with clean water and black watercolor, then popped it up on foam mounting tape.


For my focal point, I added Bold Greenery Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, Pretty Posies stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice hybrid ink, and Hello There Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice card stock—all on top of some curled up black silk thread. I finished the sentiment by stamping Label Maker Sentiments with Black Licorice hybrid ink on Label Tape Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, popped up on foam tape.

And that’s it! I love that stencil, don’t you? Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!

  1. I love this card with the bright colored rainbow using the One Way Chevron stencil, the big hello and the leaves. It all adds up to the Wow factor.


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
