I have a fun little card to share with you today, which I made with supplies from Pretty Pink Posh. I am totally in love with layering stencils and I enjoy coming up with different colour combos for each, but I had another idea for the Layering Cherries stencil from their latest release. Let me show you!
First I did a quick ink blending on Neenah Solar white cardstock with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink. Then I used the first layer of the Layering Cherries stencil set with Lumberjack Plaid Distress Oxide ink. I love this red colour, my absolute new favourite! I added a tiny bit of Aged Mahogany to the bottom of the cherries. For the stems I used Rustic Wilderness first and then realized that the cherry stems are rather brown, so I went back with Ground Espresso. This way the result is a brownish green, perfect for the pink background! For the leaves layer I used the same green but wanted to lighten them a little, so I went back with Twisted Citron. After removing the last layer I generously spritzed the panel with water from a mini mister and dabbed it off with a paper towel after 30 seconds.
In my head I visualized smiling cherries, so I added little faces to each using the Ghost Friends stamp set. As I had to ink up only the face of each ghost, I used a black Memento marker on the eyes and noses instead of an ink pad. It worked perfectly! I need to try this technique with sentiments too!
For the sentiment I chose the Love Sentiments stamp set, and simply stamped the text in the middle using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I trimmed the panel down tiny and gave it a dark red mat before adhering to a top folding A2 sized card base.
As a finishing touch I used some little white clay hearts from the Valentine’s Day Mix.
I wish you enjoyed this cute design and you will try this technique.
See you soon,

Lovely job! Your background is SO even that I figured for sure it was light pink stock. Nope! Beautifully blended ink! Wow… and it’s such a cute card! Great work!
