STENCILING + SPONGING

CAS Stencil is a new challenge that just began this January and had a go at it with these cards.



I used Altenew's Sketchy Floral stamp and the coordinating Floral Drape stencil for both cards.  The stamp and stencil are very large and I was able to get two cards out of the piece.  After stamping on white cardstock, I used the stencil and sponged in the color with a small dauber.  I added the gray shadow on the first card with a small flat brush.  The card base on both cards is a soft gray.

I am entering my card in CAS Stencil (sponging) and The Flower Challenge (pink and gray). 

 

Thanks for visiting today and your kind comments make my day!
