Well, I've been bitten by a bug; more precisely, the 'stenciling' bug! Seriously, I had no clue stenciling - when I put my mind to it - could be so much fun. Of course, we're talking only basic stenciling/sponging, however, I'm a happy camper just dabbing and blobbing away, excited as a school girl to see the full reveal once done. In comparison to my pathetic, yet persistent, efforts at water-colour, stenciling is, bar none, a zillion times more fun, plus I actually have results to show for my attempts. (Mr. Recycle Bin chows down on the majority of my water-colouring...).
My *beginner* cards are all off to Happy Little Stampers March CAS Challenge~Sponging
My first card was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's ink layering technique. Of course, the key players in all this were my W&W triangle stencil and thanks cutaway, plus a little sparkle-paper butterfly that flitted in...
Heading to Winnie&Walter Join in to Win
My second card, which truly took under 10 minutes to make - uses two Memory Box stencils: Delphinium and Stems
I'm sharing this at As You See It #077~Shades of Purple, who offered us this lovely photo as inspiration and which I replicated fairly literally, and STAMPlorations March Challenge~Stamps and Stencil.
NOTE: Honoured and thrilled to be the As You See It Featured Artist! THANK YOU bunches!!
My final card (for this post anyway *grin*) uses Memory Box Modern sprinkles, a Uniko sentiment and an NBUS butterfly that I didn't even know I had...d-uh!
ShowCASe Your Style #10~Colour Challenge is this card's second destination:
That's a wrap with my trio...and yes, yes indeed, more stenciling and sponging is underway!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
