CAS One Layer Stencil Card

EDIT: Winner and Top 3 at the Craftin Desert Divas & STAMPlorations
This is another one layer CAS card created with a stencil and some distress inks. It actually took a lot longer than I expected to finish this card. Read on...

Since this stencil doesn't have a consecutive pattern (like this one) and the flowers are quite far apart, I felt like it needed a border. But I didn't want to trim it down and mount it on a black panel, as I was going for the one layer card. So I did it the hard way, which is masking thin areas and inking them up with black distress ink. 

It took me quite a while to position all the masking tape right, and after inking just one side, I got ink all over the masking tape and my fingers! I went slower and was extra careful when I repositioned these masks, but I still got some small splotches of ink/fingerprints here and there on the card. Ugh. Nothing I couldn't save with my white gel pen, but it still bugs me. Next time I'll just use my copic-multiliner. Sighs... Learned a lesson, though!

Again, I wanted to keep the focal point of the card on the stenciled pattern,  so I only added this simple sentiment banner. I only adhered the left side of the banner, and left the rest hanging. Felt like the half floating sentiment added some more interest. Hope you like this modern, simple card!
