I made my second card of today for quite a few challenges for WCMD at Winnie & Walter:

Make A Card For A Friend With Taheerah;

CASE with Lydia;

Colour Combo with Heather P.


Happy birthday friend


The Leaf Effect Creative Screenings was the star here. The trick to make the leafy panel is rotate. I used a bunch of VersaMagic inks, starting with the lighter ones. Then, rotate the stencil and used darker shades of similar colors, then rotate a third time using the darkest shades. After this last step, with the stencil a little bit offset, sponged white pigment ink, and that’s it! The faux layering gives a cool effect, right?

    This is ingenious! I love the effect created with the rotation of the stencil – thanks for the inspiration, Cris!!
