Post 220: CAS One Layer Card- Hi!

Hi folks!

Hows your week looking? The weather here has turned quite unpleasant lately. It is humid and so hot. There isn't much one can do except staying indoors, having a lot of liquids and putting on the air conditioning. So I spent many hours crafting and challenged myself to make cas one layer cards. They are quite difficult for me, especially, if I want to keep them totally flat. So no sequins or embellishments. 

Today, the first card I'd like to share is a CAS OLC. I was happy to use a couple of never before used supplies: a stamp and stencil. This is slightly smaller than an A2 card so it is 5.25 by 4 inches in size. I basically sponged on distress oxide inks through a hexagon shaped stencil and then heat embossed the sentiment and bee in bright yellow. I kept the color scheme as yellow and black to go with the summery "bee" theme

List of Supplies:

Hexagon Design Stencil
Ranger's Distress Oxide Inkpads- Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade
Ranger's Round Blending Tool and Foams
Versamark Watermark Mini Inkpad
Homemade Emboss Buddy
Ranger's Embossing Powder- Lemon
Ranger's Heat tool

Here are a couple of photographs of the card:

2. I Love Math Challenge #6- Hexagon (I have used a hexagon stencil here)

5. SSS Wednesday Challenge- Summer Sunshine (depicted by the bees and yellow hues)
