For my third Imagine Crafts project this month I thought I use my favorite VersaMagic ink colors (Key Lime and Sea Breeze) along with a new Arrows stencil from Donna Salazar.

I started by placing the stencil over a 2 5/8″ x 5″ piece of white cardstock and sponged the arrows alternating Key Lime and Sea Breeze VersaMagic Inks.

The arrows were outlined with Tuxedo Black Memento Marker.

Round top left and bottom right corner and adhere to a slightly bigger piece of black cardstock.

Stamp sentiment in Midnight Black VersaMagic Ink on the bottom right of the card base, a 5 1/2″ x 7″ piece of Patina Bazzill cardstock, folded in half.

Round bottom right and upper left corner and adhere arrow layer with dimensional adhesive. Finish off card by adding three black rhinestones on the top right of the arrow layer.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
