Hi everyone. Back with the final reminder for the March CAS Challenge - Sponging. We are thrilled to again have a phenomenal amount of creative entries this month - YAY! So much beautiful eye candy in the gallery! :)
Today's card uses layered stencils to sponge this pretty design. I used the technique in this video by Jennifer McGuire. I was so impressed with how beautiful her card was, I went out and bought a stencil that I thought would work for this technique. Fast forward to months later and I haven't used it yet. :) That happens to me a lot. Anyways, after deciding to make Sponging the challenge for this month, I immediately thought of it and pulled it out.
I didn't re-watch the video by Jennifer, so I may not have followed her instructions exactly, but I remembered the gist of it. :) I'm really happy with how this turned out ... so pretty and delicate. I used my clear Wink of Stella pen to go over the stems, and outline the leaves, flowers, and hello to add just a bit of sparkle. :) Unfortunately, it doesn't show up in the photo.
I'm also entering this into the latest NBUS Challenge #4 - congrat to Darnell for reaching an amazing amount of followers. This is the first time I've used this stencil.
and also entering it into ATS&M #136 - Anything Goes.
I hope you'll join us for our CAS challenge at Happy Little Stampers Blog. There's only a few more days left to play along, so grab your sponges, make a CAS (clean and simple) card and join in the fun!
I hope you've enjoyed seeing all the lovely CAS sponged cards in the gallery ... and ones done by Susan, Kylie and me. Looking forward to our next CAS Challenge which will be posted April 3 at 6am (AEST) ... that's 1pm April 2 my time (PDST). :)
