Layered Daisies

Hi everyone.  Today's card is a reminder for the CAS Mix Up October challenge, hosted by Julia.


This is a different way of layering stencils.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut three stencils, all with the same daisy design, but in different sizes.  I placed the stencil over my card front and used ink and my clarity brushes to add in a variety of colours and sizes. The lighter daisies give the illusion that they are in the background, giving this one layer card some depth.

The card front was run through the Big Shot with a stitched rectangle die to add some stitching lines around the edges.  I used a Distress marker (Brushed Corduroy) to add some dots to a few of the flowers.  A simple stamped sentiment finishes the card.

These fun, bright flowers make me happy. :)

How clever to make and design your own stencils and love how the sizes are different. Once again your work with color is amazing. Love the doodling on some of them. It adds so much interest to them.
