Hi everyone. Back with a reminder of the April Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - Stenciling.
This is the card I made for my hubby's birthday which was just a few days ago. I used brushos (just the brown which has other colour pigments in it) to create the backdrop on mixed media paper. This was my first time playing with this paper --- so fun, and it gives a different look than the brushos on watercolour paper. Love it!!
I used my die from Cheery Lynn (Pair of Ferns), to die-cut a stencil from a piece of acetate. I sponged over top with Vintage Photo distress ink, and then again down the center of the fern with a darker brown (Walnut Stain). I then pressed the darker brown ink onto my craft mat, added a little bit of water, and used a paintbrush to splatter on top. So happy with how this turned out and hubby loved it too! :)
I'm entering this into the ATS&M #139 - CAS Challenge.
I am sharing another card I made using a stencil with sponging ...
This time I was channeling my friend Deepti. I love all her cards she's made with this awesome layout and wanted to give it a try. I sponged over brown card stock with a basket weave stencil that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I sponged the same colour ink as the card stock, so it gives more of a subtle design.
I cut the top piece from white with a stitched border die. I then added sprigs of greenery, along with some hot pink flowers . A large hello sentiment is stamped in the same brown ink.
This is a reminder for the current challenge at Mixed Media Card Challenge - April - Flowers with optional element of Basket.
I hope you'll join us and play along!
And I'm going to enter this into Virginia's View #14 - Layers and Dimensions Challenge.
And the challenge at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - April Showers.
