Hi everyone. This is a reminder of the CAS Mix Up April challenge - Stenciling. I used stamping, stenciling, gilding flakes, heat embossing, and torn edge for today's card. :)
I had fun making this card. The yellowy background is from my stash. It's done on mixed media paper, smooshing the watercolour sprays (yellow, orange and pink) and then blotting with a paper towel to get a soft dreamy look.
I experimented with this card. I used the gilding flake glue through a stencil. Wasn't sure if it would work, so I just did a small test, adding a bit of gilding flake glue (it's a special glue) over a mesh stencil on the bottom right of my panel, then burnishing with gilding flakes. Turns out it works really well, with the glue washing easily off the stencil, as long as you wash it right away. I'll be doing more of this! :) The large gilding flake butterfly is done using double-sided tape.

This was made for my dear friend Lee-Anne (Creatively LA) to thank her for being our Featured Designer this month. Bonnie and I appreciate the time she took to create an amazing card for the launch of our April Challenge on April 1st. And she created another fabulous card for today's reminder post. Check it out HERE. Thanks again Lee-Anne. xx
The challenge is open for another 9 days, so still lots of time to play along. Hope to see you in the gallery!
