Stencilled flowers

Happy Saturday friends!

I’m playing along with the current CAS stencil challenge. This month the challenge is to stencil over a coloured background.

I love this challenge as it helps me practice/learn some techniques but have rarely entered a card because I find it quite difficult to incorporate the technique in a CAS card. Take my creation today for instance… it’s definitely simple but the ‘white’ (or in this case black!) space is limited. CAS is definitely my preferred style and I don’t usually struggle with other CAS challenges, but to be honest I’d probably prefer a wider frame if I was making it again…

Still, I looked back at the DT inspiration and also their past winners and decided to give it a whirl as the amount of ‘white’ space is comparable to some of those showcased cards…. it’ll be interesting to hear what the DT members think.

To create my card, I used an old blended background created with regular distress inks plus a Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous stencil. The frame was cut with a Studio Katia stencil and the sentiment was created using part of a Waffle Flower Crafts die.

Thanks for stopping by!
