It's time for a new challenge at CAS Mix Up.
First, here's my card.
Julia is hosting our challenge this month.
I used stamping, layering 3 different stencils, masking, and die cutting
I began by using the leftover piece from die cutting the Memory Box Delicate Fern
as a stencil, sponging through it with Distress Oxide ink.
It went on so smooth!
I cut some more ferns from all over sticky Post-it notes and
laid them over the stenciled ferns.
Then I laid a dotty stencil over top and added some Distress Oxide ink through that
with a sponge dauber.
Wanting some color in my garden, I used a Tim Holtz stencil, sponging
with dye inks for the flowers.
I wanted more vibrant colors for the flowers and I love
the contrast between the two different inks!
After trying several different colors and typed of ink for the sentiment,
I settled on using the Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink.
I thought the softness of that ink fit best with the feeling of the card.
Now it's your turn.
I hope you'll pull out your stencils and join us at CAS Mix Up.
