Mid Month Reminder! January CAS Stencil Card Challenge - Sponging.

I'm here posting my mid-month reminder of the January CAS Stencil Challenge!  You still have time to link up your card!   This month the challenge is to use sponging with your stencils.
This time I used two stencils meant to be layered over each other, Layered Dahlia A and Layered Dahlia B from Altenew.
I took a few photos as I was creating my card so you could see how the layering was created.  First, I laid the A stencil over a 6x6 panel of white cardstock and sponged over the stencil with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink.
Here's how it looked when I removed the stencil.
Then I placed Stencil B over the panel lining up the white lines on the image. and sponged over this stencil with Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink.
And this beautiful dimensional panel was revealed when I lifted off the stencil!
I cut this panel into two smaller pieces 4 3/4" x 2 3/4" each and I created two CAS cards from them.
The sentiment is from Penned Elegance and I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. They are layered over the image with foam dots.

So if you haven't already joined in -  please do now!  Show us how you sponge up those stencils!  You'll find technique videos and beautiful samples by the Design Team over at the challenge blog here.  You have until January 24th to link up your CAS Sponged Stencil Cards!

Two Gorgeous layered stencil sponged images, Julia. TFS your photos of one layer and then two layers. What a huge dimensional beautiful difference, my friend. Your color combo turned out beautifully too. How fun to get a Twofer out of your one image. TFS and always inspiring us. Hugs..Nancy
