NEW Series! Stencil Sundays!

Sunset Skyline Card

Did you know that The Ink Pad has a whole line of exclusive NYC-themed stencils and rubber stamps designed by Michelle Ward? They're available in both the online store and the NYC location. For this card, I, Lauren, have used the NYC Skyline Stencil and Masks.

 

I love that this set has the positive and negative images of two different 7.5" wide sections of skyline. In this case, I only used the stencils, but as you can see, I used both sections, a bunch of times each. I started near the top, and each time I moved the stencil, I changed to a different sunset-shade of Ranger Archival Ink, which I applied with a fingertip applicator. In all, I used Magenta, Peony, Tea Rose, Saffron, Pale Ochre and Fuchsia.

It's unusual for me to not add texture, but I found that after I had completed all of the stencil layers, it looked so lovely, I didn't want to put anything else on there. I considered a sentiment, but since I didn't make this A6 card for any particular occasion, I decided tot wait and see if a sentiment leapt out at me in future. I did add a very sparkly glitter paper mat that coordinated with the darkest, brightest pink.

Just a reminder that The Ink Pad is located at the corner of 7th Avenue and 13th Street in Manhattan; but The Ink Pad Online Store is just a click away!
