I finally found a day to spend in my craft room - and one of the things I wanted to get done was a card for the August CAS Mix Up Challenge!
I used water for my 'spray' - inking my Intersecting Brick Circles from Stencil Girls with Distress Mermaid Lagoon Ink, spritzing the stencil with water - and laying it over a white panel. I pressed over the stencil with a paper towel - and then removed the stencil.
I cut my panel in half and made two cards! One is a 'Well Wishes' card for a friend recovering from a recent surgery.
and I made the 2nd a Birthday card. I think using this stencil in blue - the card would work for a guy or a girl.
I used Loll's technique of white embossing the sentiment on a black sentiment strip - it really gives a punch on the mostly white card. I layered my stenciled panels to a slightly larger black panel as well - and adhered it to the card base with foam dots.
I'm also linking my card to:
It was in the 90's here yesterday - so I was more than happy to stay inside in the airconditioning and play in my craft room!
