I had my stencils out the other day...causing havoc and mayhem and generally messiness as always. I got thinking about one-layer cards and just went from there!
I took this sweet bear from RRD's Getting Grizzly and made him the center of my stenciled background. I stamped him onto my card with Memento ink, colored him with copic markers (greys for him and blue for the snow) and then masked him and the sentiment with a bit of scrap I had cut using my oval cutter.
I laid my stencil over the card and started sponging with a light blue distress ink. I added smaller blotches of medium blue and finally little splotches of dark blue until I achieved the look I liked. Voila! One-layer Christmas card!
Here's the whole thing!
