Along with tackling stencils I also use two colours I rarely use especially in one tone.
First I made the background with two distress oxide colours then using the Hero Arts Large Lotus pattern stencil, layered it on two shades of yellow and decided to play with the cone flower die which I cut in yellow then in foam core to elevate it on the card, Finished with a trio of yellow glitter enamel dots from the Eyelet Outlet.
For this pair of ATCs I started out with the background using two shades of brown distress oxide ink and after it was dry I use the Tim Holtz splatters stencil in the darker colour. The coffee mug is a stamp and die from Verve and I paper pieced some clock paper on it. I also added some coffee beans and the sentiments are from the Verve coffee set. It is also layered on two shades of brown.
