Hello friends! I'm here today to remind you that there is still time to link up your Sept CAS Stencil Card Challenge. I'm hosting this month and my challenge is to use Baby Wipes with your stencils. There are a few links to techniques over at CAS Stencil for your inspiration.
Today I used the technique I like the best - sponging a panel with water based inks (I used Distress Oxides here) and then laying the stencil over the panel and rubbing over the stencil with a baby wipe to remove some ink.
I'm in Halloween mode already as 2 friends and I will be having a Halloween sale at my church in October so we have to get crackin'!
a close up of the web
Here are a few process photos.
I sponged Distress Oxide Black Soot ink over a water color panel - this is 5" x 5" but I later trim it down to fit an A2 card front.
I laid my Web Stencil from MFT over the panel and held it with some mask tape.
I rubbed over the stencil with a baby wipe.
The wipe was a little bit over-wet and you can see that it looks a bit juicy after I removed the stencil!
So I quickly got out my heat tool to dry it before I smudged it!
and here it is all nice and dry!
Then I die cut a black card panel using Lawn Fawns Reverse Stitches Scalloped Circle Die, layered it over the web (that I trimmed to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" size) on foam dots. I die cut the Memory Box Dangling Spider out of black Kraft Stock and laid it over the web with a foam dot as well. I added two Tiny Twinkle yellow eyes. I white embossed the sentiment from Amuse in the corner.
I think this is the first time that I have used black as my open CAS space. But I knew if I used white it just wouldn't be as scary!
I also wanted to share with you what I did since I had all my supplies out on my work table. I had saved some white inside pieces from prior projects that I cut using the Scalloped Circles Die. (We just can't throw this stuff away right?!) The three lighter ones are just a white card stock. I sponged them with the DOX Black Soot ink, laid the stencil over them and wiped with the baby wipe.
The one on the top left was the black piece cut out from this project and I just sponged it with the black and then wiped over the stencil and was surprised that even black over black gave a fun result! So now I can make 4 more Halloween cards using these!
You have until 9/24 to link up your CAS stencil with baby wipes card. I can't wait to see what you do!
There's lots of Design Team inspiration over at CAS Stencil - as well as from our talented Guest Designer this month - Sarah!
