This week it is a one-layer challenge at Less is More with the criteria TWO. There were some beautiful examples by the DTs as usual, but I didn't have much time to search for that special image I thought was needed. Instead, I chose to do a stencil image, and here is my card.
I saw Jennifer McGuire demonstrate this technique on youtube - do check it out here as her result is stunning! Sadly, I don't own a stencil as interesting as hers, so I used the chevron one I did have, made a star stencil from a punch, and stamped the sentiment by Stampin Up! and the snow flakes from Gorgeous Grunge. I am thinking now that I should have added decorations, but my first thought was that they are in the snow, so who would be decorating trees out there? Goodness knows why I thought I had to be realistic - this is card-making isn't it :) This is a great technique, however, and well worth trying with various shapes.
I have been alerted to the current challenge at Addicted to CAS where the code word is 'Stencil' - so I will enter this card into their challenge too! Thanks Sarah!
