AAA Cards - #88 Stencil

A new CAS challenge starts today at AAA Cards and it's all about putting those stencils to good use.

As the challenge is sponsored by Stamplorations I decided to pull out one of my first ever purchases from them - Happy Flowers. It's one of my all time favourites too!


I'm really embracing orange as a colour recently, it always was one of my least favourite colours to use but I'm getting to enjoy it far more now.  I actually only used a yellow and pink ink but love how it's blended together to produce orangey areas.


I'm seeing a lot of black sentiment mats and banners around blogland at the moment and decided to give this a go. I'm loving how the contrast really makes it pop.

Supplies:
Stamps: Stamplorations, Fond Expressions 2
Inks: Ranger distress, picked raspberry, mustard seed; Memento, bamboo leaves; Versamark, clear
Stencil: ARTplorations, Happy Flowers
Embossing: Ranger fine, white

As well as the amazing Shery from Stamplorations creating a card for this AAA Cards Challenge we also have the wonderful Maria from White Mood joining us as a Guest Designer. And then of course there's all the sensational inspiration from the AAA Cards DT - here.

Huge thanks for visiting my blog today, I really love it when you drop by.  And keep crafting!

  1. Swooning at your stencilling here Jane! What perfect use of colour combos which give the effect of watercolours through this particular stencil. Bold and beautiful. Hope you're having a happy Easter. x
