Thursday Thoughts

Just squeezing a card into the challenge at CAS Stencil!

I have a huge stack of patterned paper pads that don't get used nowhere near enough so today's card is a tiny step to rectifying that.

I chose a paper that looked like it was a meadow with hills and sky and then placed an ARTplorations flower stencil on top. I used distress oxides to ink through and made sure there was a good layer of ink as the background greens are quite dark. I was really excited when I lifted the stencil and saw the result!

I then die the panel into a smaller stitched rectangle, added a sentiment and matted the whole thing onto a dark green card base.

Stamps: Uniko, Birthday Sentiments
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, squeezed lemonade, picked raspberry, wilted violet; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog today, you know I always love to have you visit.

And keep crafting!

  1. Hi. I found your blog via a blog x 3 blogs lol. Love this idea of stencil colouring onto patterned paper. I'd never of thought of doing that. Your card turned out great. I'm going to have a look to see if I can enter any of the challenges mentioned above. So happy I found a UK blogger (they're very few and far between)
    Till next time xx

  2. What gorgeous paper you used to stencil your wild flowers over Jane - it makes a beautiful scene on your card and pops off the green card base - love the font on your sentiment too! thanks for joining us at CAS Stencil! xx

  3. Fabulous results Jane with the stenciling over that lovely patterned paper - sure does look like a scene, great card and thanks for sharing with CAS Stencil

  4. Jane, I love how you used a paper resembling a landscape as a background for the lovely stenciling and the green card base looks fab, makes a change from white! Thank you for sharing at CAS Stencil.
