It's October 1 and time for a new CAS Mix Up Challenge - and this month I am the hostess! Here is my challenge to you!
There are links to several YouTube Videos of ways to layer stencils so be sure to check those out!
For my card I used stamping, layering of stencils, a die cut frame and sequins!
Here are two photos showing my stencil layers - first I sponged over this pretty Shower of Flutters stencil from Stamplorations using Ranger Distress Wilted Violet. It's a negative stencil so the color goes on the background and leaves the buterflies with no color.
I laid the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous mini grid stencil over the butterflies and sponged with Ranger Distress Milled Lavender.
I cut my panel into two pieces to keep my card CAS and was able to make two similar cards.
The second card has a slightly larger stenciled panel and so it covers the sides of the dotted die cut framing.
(a funny optical thing with this butterfly stencil - I find if I focus my eye on the purple - I can lose the butterflies and it almost looks like a map of a coastline with inlets and lakes?!? then if I look directly at one of the butterflies - they come back!)
So please join us and show us how you layer stencils on your CAS cards! See all details and the link up over at the CAS Mix Up blog here! You have until October 24th!
