Jan 2020 CAS Stencil - Use a New One!

Welcome to the first CAS Stencil Challenge of 2020!  Nancy is our hostess and she invites us to Use a New Stencil!
I can't believe it but it's also the 1st birthday of the challenge and we are having a celebration!
One Winner will receive - $25 Gift Card for Simon Says Stamp
One Random draw will receive - $25 Gift Card for Simon Says Stamp

Here is my card using a newly purchased stencil from Altenew called Liquid Marble.
 Here's a photo of the full stencil and the supplies I used - Ranger Distress Wilted Violet Ink and Pixie Spray that works wonderfully to hold those little pieces on stencils that could lift up when sponging.
The sentiment is from Botanical Bounty Sentiments from PTI, the card base is cut using Noted: Scalloped A2 Dies from PTI and the stencil panel is cut using Crimped Frames from The Greetery.

So please join us and show us what new stencils you have!  You could win our Birthday prize!
You'll find the CAS Stencil Challenge here as well as lots of inspiration from the rest of the Design Team and our wonderful January Guest Designer - Arlene!

What a wonderful CAS stenciled card with a sense of bold and dynamic movement, Julia! I love the marble pattern and the color. The font style of the sentiment matches the movement.
Happy 1st anniversary on the Design Team!
