Time for a new TicTacToe Challenge and Felicita has a fun new board with great starting points for you.  I went down the right side of her board with embellishment, coloring and stencil.


Wasn't sure where I wanted to go with the stencil idea so started flipping through my stash and found this layering stencil that I don't think I've ever used.  After stenciling the florals in two colors of ink, I added a bit more depth with colored pencils.  I spattered the piece and then die cut with a stitched rectangle.  Matted it on black and then onto my card base.  Added the sentiment and some clear sequins and done!  This was really fast and easy card to make - think I might "need" more layering stencils!!!

The colors at the Color Hues Challenge are pink and green - so will enter my card there too.

Thanks for visiting today.



  1. So pretty!!! And I see the long format is your favorite right now !!

  2. Beautiful floral spray with the layering stencil, Betty - makes a perfect slimline!!

  3. It's just amazing the look one can achieve with stencils, but you've taken this one over the top with your pencils, beautiful layout, splatters... it's divine!

  4. Fantastic card Betty. I have a couple of layering stencils and they make it so quick to do a card.

  5. My jaw dropped when I saw this on IG! Absolutely gorgeous card, Betty!

  6. You inspire me, Betty, because I'm sitting here with some layered stencils on Mt. NBUS and they need some love! With your layout and coloring, you have created the ultimate spring design! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
