"Plastic Patterns" Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop where we are using Close To My Heart products to create artwork using "Plastic Patterns". Participants could interpret that theme however they want so I encourage you to make your way around the Blog Hop to check out all of the fabulous creations.

If you are coming from Darlys's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants below.

I had a blast making this card, with the background designed using Stencil Pack 1 and two colors of Oxide Inks.

Using the Craft Mat and this beautiful 12" x 12" plastic stencil, I applied the two colors (shown below) on the floral pattern. I started with the yellow shade in the middle and then added the ink, with it blending to create the orange shade. Then, I applied a little bit more of the pink, on the ends, to create a darker shade. 

These are the two colors of ink I used and I love them! 
These are the three designs that come in Stencil Pack 1, although we have others from which to choose.

This is how the White Daisy paper looked before I added on the black hearts, dovetail banners and the simple sentiment.

I enjoyed creating this card and love the results. The best part about didn't take me any time to make it! I love when that happens. 

I appreciate you stopping by my blog. Don't forget to continue your way so you can see the other artwork that has been created to share with you today. Now, head over to Cat's Blog to see her creation!

Happy hoppin'!
