Sponged and Stenciled

 I've used a couple of techniques on this card.




I used a leaf stencil that Loll had sent me.

This is not as CAS as some of my cards.  I hope it's not too busy.


I think this will work for the 


I've used stamping plus sponging and stenciling.
I sponged through the stencil and sponged the die cut iris.



We have enjoyed such a beautiful day today.
The leaves are popping out on the trees.
It's good to see green again.
And the flowering trees are so pretty.
I need to take my camera outside.


I'm so glad you stopped by to visit.

Enjoy!

Wow ... gorgeous card Bonnie. Love the stenciled and stamped background. Subtle in colour but with lots of impact, it created a beautiful backdrop to show off your gorgeous iris. Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers and Mixed Media Card Challenge. Loll xx

Goodness, no, it's not too busy at all, Bonnie! It's still quite CAS in my book. And very very lovely with the different techniques you applied. I love irises.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Easter. Rejoice and be glad!
