Stenciled Flower

Hi and welcome!  It's time for another challenge at The Flower Challenge and this month we are CASEing the Design Team.  That's right - choose any of the design team cards and CASE it.

For my card, I went with one of my favorite techniques - stenciling.




I took a panel of white cardstock and placed a NBUS Hero Arts stencil on the left hand side.  I then sponged over the top with Faded Jeans and Broken China Distress Oxide inks, keeping the darker color to the top.  Once that was done, I stamped the gorgeous Penny Black Dreamy stamp in Versafine Onyx Black ink and this beautiful sentiment from SugarPea Designs.



The panel was die-cut with a stitched die and adhered to a white card base with foam tape.


Thanks for visiting.  The Design Team have some wonderful designs to CASE so head on over and check them out.

I'm linking this up to the Always Fun Challenge, who are looking for flowers this week.

Fabulous CAS design, Karren! Distress Oxide inks seem to blend more softly in rich colors! The stenciling in ombre is beautifully done!

Hi Karren :) The stencil is completely divine, especially in the gorgeous blues you have used. Love the flower stamp too. Lovely!

Beautiful! I love that you've only partially covered the panel in the stencil and the black of the flower and the sentiment is perfect. It's so classy! xx

Hello Karren: I love the striking detail of this lovely and graphic blue stenciling as a background for this delicate Penny Black flower, I love it, been after it because you can't go wrong with it, any color looks amazing with it and, when you emboss it with glitter looks gorgeous too.
That sentiment is so profound and so very true, words and actions to live by.
Hugs,
Maria.
