CAS Stencil Card Challenge Reminder: Sprays

Time for our CAS Stencil Card Challenge Reminder Challenge 
hosted by our very talented DT girl Robyn.

We have two special Guest Designers this month 
Hilary (fiddling about) and Amy (Miss_Lomax_Art).

Here is my stenciled card using Distress Oxide Sprays!

I used an A2 size of Strathmore Mixed Media paper and taped down Artplorations 
"Roses" stencil.  I was not very successful at keeping my sprays from leaking under the stencil
in places,  but planned on die cutting my image down for a CAS design.

I used Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Sprays
and when dry die cut with Memory Box Stitched Rectangles Die.
Placed stencil over image to outline with black Fine Tip Sharpie.

Before cutting stenciled roses I got a monoprint image for a future card:-)
It turned out beautifully!

Totally covered my image with Versamark and heat embossed with clear eb powder.
You can see the shine in the right light!

Framed image with die cut SU Calypso Coral Coredinations CS (ret). 
Popped up main image with White Craft Foam.  
Attached to SU Whisper White 100# CS and stamped and heat embossed 
Penny Black "Smile all Season" sentiment and Done!

You still have until the 24th to play along with this fun CAS Stencil Challenge.
Thank you Robyn for hosting this month.  Hugs...

  1. A lovely stencil Nancy and the colours are so pretty!

  2. Nancy this is lovely... and here I thought this challenge was over! That means I still have time to give it a go! Thanks, for the beautiful reminder!

  3. So pretty in the dark pink with a touch of purple Nancy! The outlining adds great definition to the sprayed stenciling! xx

  4. the DOX sprays have an amazing depth of colour Nancy, and I love your outlining of your stencil image. beautiful card :)

  5. A really lovely stenciled card Nancy... those DO sprays cover beautifully and the idea to outline your stencil lifts the flowers to give another dimension - I can imagine the clear embossing looks fabulous, thanks so much for having fun with sprays this month, hugs Robyn

    1. Thank you so much Robyn for your sweet comment and for hosting a fun creative stencil challenge. Hugs...

  6. Pretty mix of colours for your sprayed rose stencil, Nancy! The outlining really brings focus to the design of the stencil. Great work, my friend! xx

  7. You did a great job with that technique, Nancy and that's not easy. Wet and stencil don't work well for me- I always have it leaking. I do love the stencil mono printing though. Can't wait to see what you do with that piece. I give you credit for outlining too. Love how it defines the stencil.

  8. beautiful colors that blended together and I really like the double stitched layers.

  9. What a pretty rose and a great mix of colors, Nancy! I'll bet that clear embossing makes it look like stained glass!

  10. Your roses are so pretty in pink, Nancy. The colours may have seeped underneath, but it gives it an organic artsy look. The outlining looks cool too. xx

  11. Such an artsy card and the technique is unique and looks wonderful. The clear embossing is a fabulous idea and those roses are so pretty x.

  12. Gorgeous artsy card Nancy, love the outlining, really makes the roses pop, Cathy x

  13. What a fabulous result and so clean and pretty Nancy!

  14. What a gorgeous mix of colours, and such a pretty stencil. I love how you've outlined the flower too xx
