Without the Stars

The new LO idea on The Sketch File Blog is called "Starry Layers", but there's not a star to be seen on my first card using it - instead the threesome that makes the top layer on my card are some stencilled bicycles
I've been playing around with stencils quite a lot on this card, as not only are the bikes stencilled, but the horizontal stripe, and the rectangular 2nd layer are also stencilled - and then I added a bit more to add interest to the sentiment piece.

By first stencilling the bike shape onto an all-over sticky post-it note and cutting it out, I made a mask so that I could them stencil the bikes one behind another in different colours.
The bike is just one of the elements on this 

Once dry I cut around the whole shape and added a silver brad to each wheel

The yellow chevrons for the horizontal stripe and sentiment, plus the border design used to create the rectangular shape are from
 this stencil:  Hero Arts: - Stylish Borders
I just stencilled the design again and again in black ink until I had the size rectangle I needed, then added centres to each circle with 
a silver pen to look like wheels!

I die cut the pale blue oval and embossed with a chevron embossing folder (Crafter's Companion). 
 I just wish I'd used yellow for this bit, but too late now....

The sentiment was pc generated, trimmed down and the yellow 
stencilled bit added 

Here is the March sketch

That's it, Thanks for popping over today, I hope you'll leave a message :)
