Virginia's View Challenge #11 (Clean Slate)

Virginia's View Challenge #11 (Clean Slate)

I love the Virginia's View Challenges! The cards in this challenge never disappoint, they are always so beautiful. 

Here's what Virginia says this challenge is about:

~card design with a lot of white space
~one layer ( no layers; you can add embellishments, such as sequins, twines, ribbons..etc)
~masking technique 
~white on white (ex. white card stock with white textured/stamped designs) 
~layered stamping
~anything that involves WHITE

For my card I left lots of white space, created a one layer design using stencils, used a masking technique and I also did layered stamping. 

The stencils I used are from Plaid and Memory Box. The Memory Box stencil is called Delicate Butterflies. The inks are from Tsukineko Splendor called #10 Circus. Base cardstock is from PaperTrey Ink. The sentiment used for the card above is from Hero Arts and the one used on the card below if from Lawn Fawn. 

The second card below is just an extra. I didn't add it to the challenge. I was just playing around with another one of the Plaid stencils. I thought it looked like it would be a good choice for a birthday card!

Happy Birthday!

Be sure to stop by Virginia's Challenge and check out all the gorgeous cards!

If you live in a state that is having frigid temps right now....enjoy it, Ha!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love your CAS design! The compostion and color integration are marvelous and your use of white space is spot on! CAS is the hardest genre for me, and i trully admire those who can edit themselves and create one layer little masterpieces.

I came to your blog from Twitter. I like humor and sarcasm as well...lots of folks don't get it! Anyway, I love your work and have bookmarked your page. I would love to see you enter some of your designs at my challenge blog : 613 Avenue Create
