CAS Mix Up July Reminder

Hi everyone.  Today's card is a reminder that we are already half way through July.  There's still nine days left until the CAS Mix Up July Challenge closes.

I'm having fun with Stencil Tracing, which is hosted by my dear friend, Nancy.  This time I used only a portion of a large flower stencil, tracing the stencil with a metallic silver pen.  It turned out well, even though the silver pen had a mind of its own. :)  It doesn't like to stop and start, usually leaving a little extra of the silver ink behind.

I cropped my image to fit inside this beautiful PB frame.  I then heat embossed the sentiment in silver to match.

My CAS Mix Up card has stenciling, stencil tracing, sponging, die-cuts, heat embossing, and stamping.

Close-up ...
I hope you'll come join us.  Make a stenciled card and then trace the design using the stencil as a guide.  Come join us!

A beautiful, elegant card, Loll. The blue and silver go so well together and I love how you've just used part of the flower. xx

Gorgeous stencil traced cropped flower, Lolly. I Loved your tracing with your silver metallic pen. Adding your image to your narrow rectangle die cut frame really added a beautiful effect. Heat embossing your sentiment with silver was a wonderful finishing touch. So pleased you added a close up photo too. Such cool shine. Stay Safe and Creative, my dear friend. Love and Hugs...Nancy

The silver outline is perfect with the shades of blue on the stencilled flower Loll and perfect on that gorgeous PB die cut frame, also the coordinating sentiment in silver looks great too. x

Bonnie said...

This is beautiful, Loll! I love how it fills the corner and the silver and blue color palette! The silver outlining has left a beautiful shine that sets off the shades of blue beautifully! An awesome card, dear friend!

An exquisite card Loll - loving the silver outlining of the flower - that is such a great detail. I may be biased as I have always loved silver and blue together...
Stay safe
