Dahlia Thank You...MUSE Challenge #260~Anita, TIME OUT Challenge #106~Photo Inspiration, 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #397~Anything Goes

Hello,

Popping in with a card inspired by the stunning stenciling at MUSE Challenge #260~Anita


and the pretty colours at TIME OUT Challenge #106~Photo Inspiration


I used the same Altenew Layered Dahlia stencil as Anita did, changing up the colours to fit with those in the inspiration photo. A 'bit' of tricky taping to mask off the different flowers, leaves and 'background' sections of the first stencil, but once done, adding ink with the second detail stencil was easy-peasy. A simple sentiment finished it off...


NOTE: Honoured and delighted to be selected as a Muse Challenge #260~Featured Member! THANK YOU!

Hope you're having a great weekend; may the sun be shining and the weather warm!

Beautiful, love this stencil. Obviously I need to splurge on more stencils, so pretty. Love the colours you chose too.

Soft and wonderfully dreamy, Carol ... that 'tricky' masking was sure worth the effort, this is gorgeous! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out ... it's always a delight when you do! Hugs, Anita :)

Jane said...

Beautiful! Love those sunny colours and the pretty stencil.

Oh so pretty! Wonderful use of that stencil. I know what you mean with fiddling with tape and masks to use different colored inks with the same stencil... It can be a bit time consuming but the end results are stunning! Thanks for joining us at Time Out!

This is one stencil set I would love to have in my stash!! I love the details and your colours couldn't be more perfect for the challenge photo. You did so well keeping it one-layer and letting that stencil be the star it so deserves! Always so wonderful to see you at TIME OUT!!

The stencil looks so wonderfully different when masked and colored like this, Carol.
