This is a scheduled post as it's my brother's wedding day today and no doubt I'll still be partying and will have had far too much wine to even think about writing this post! lol
It's time to announce this month's CAS Challenge at Happy Little Stampers and we have another great technique for you this time...
If you are unsure of this technique there are some tutorial links included over on the main challenge post.
This challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Stampers and as we are having a month long birthday celebration of Happy Little Stampers, each of the challenges this month has the following prizes:
$30 gift certificate to the winner
£10 gift certificate to each of our Favourites
Joining us as a Guestie this month is my fabulous blog buddy and Less is More teamie, Sarah of Sazzle Dazzle Crafts. Her creations are wonderful so please drop by her blog and leave her some love.
So, on to my DT card. This card kind of evolved as I went along, I had no clue where I was going with it when I started my stencilled piece.
I began by randomly inking up my stentil with three Distress Inks, spritzed with water and then placed it onto some white cardstock where I left it for a short while, blotted and pressed gently with a paper towel before lifting it off. When this was dry I die cut a section using a double stitched circle die. I decided to adhere the circle in the corner of my card base, trimming off the excess. Next I stamped the flower and leaves, and coloured with some ProMarkers before fussy cutting them out and adhering over the edge of the die cut. The sentiment was then stamped, and some Wink of Stella and a glittery enamel dot added to the centre of the flower.
