CAS Stencil Challenge

Hello there...

The  CAS Stencil Challenge for February is to use powdered inks...


Sometime ago I was given a few Brushos and when I tried them I made such a horrible mess that I never bothered again... Well this time I watched the videos and gave it another try - I can't say that I had a great success - I definitely need more practice
Anyway, I did make a card... using a circle stencil from Memory Box and the negative or second part where you lay the wet stencil onto another piece of card and here's the result using 2 shades of green powders


It made me think of bubbles in water so for fun I die cut a seahorse using thick acetate... 


The die left everything intact and just created an imprint which I cut around... and believe me at this time of year the sea and the beach are never more than a thought away...
At least the sun is shining right now...

Have a lovely Sunday

This is stunning, Ros. I love everything about it - the lovely die-cut, your stencilled effect and the beautiful seahorse. Thank you for sharing your creativity at CAS Stencil Card Challenge!

This is lovely Ros.
I was like you with the Brushos.It was disaster after disaster!
My tendency to put on too much powder has been curbed by first practicing by wetting the paper then adding the Brushos - you then get an idea of how much you really should be using rather than big blobs of powder and pools of colour everywhere!
I am still not perfect but it helped me realise that less certainly is more when it comes to using them!

Ros, this is stunning! Love the colours, the layout and even the sentiment! I just watched a video on using stencils with brushos this morning, I think I need to give this a try after seeing your card. Absolutely gorgeous Ros, have a wonderful day!

Your negative (monoprint) Brushos circle stencils image turned out perfectly, Ros. I love the colors and the die cut flow. So beautiful for your acrylic die cut seahorse. A wonderful sentiment too. TFS and joining us at CAS Stencil Card Challenge. Hugs..Nancy

I adore the acetate seahorse over your pretty green Brusho stencilled background Ros, and I love the die cut shape which works well, and the sentiment is perfect. It has been sunny here in the south west today and no rain at all, but the wind has been icy. x

Marina said...

It's a lovely, watery effect and the acetate seahorse was a great idea.

Kara Lynne said...

Your Brusho background is wonderful, Ros! Sometimes my attempts at Brusho turns into a brown puddle in the middle of the paper, and other times it plays nice. Your two greens really played nice for you and the circle stencil, it's a fabulous background for that wonderfully intricate seahorse!

Leslie Miller said...

Unbelievable how your creative mind works! Beautiful background with your stencil and Brushos. I've never tried them, but this looks really good to me. Your seahorse is so cool cut from the acetate. He looks like he's made of bubbles!

Christine Alexander said...

Ros, such a beautiful card, love your die cut and your stencil image and OMG that sea horse is stunning. There may be CASE in the future :)

Mia said...

What a stunning card, Ros. The background is awesome and I love the pretty horse. As for the Brushos, I am still trying to learn how to use them. Hugs, my friend.

Maria said...

Beautiful background that does remind me of the sea! Love the sea horse in acetate! Yes, at this ttime of year I’m thinking of the sea and warmer weather. But, it willl be a few more months. We just got more snow last night... just a couple inches. It’s a good thing that our dog loves going outside! Take care and have a great week!

Mac Mable said...

What wonderful colours from the brusho's and so glad you gave them another go Ros. The mono-print looks fabulous and the perfect stencil for the seahorse. I have had no success with die cutting acetate but after seeing your gorgeous card I will be trying again. Stunning CAS card with mixing the medias x.

Sue Lelli said...

WOW! I LOVE this and that clear seahorse is stunning with that BG!

Julia Aston said...

The clear acetate seahorse is the perfect accent for your lovely die cut stenciling - so pretty in the yellow and with the white circles! thanks for sharing with us at CAS Stencil Ros!

Loll said...

Your stenciling with powdered inks background turned out amazing Ros!! I LOVE the colours and the design you've created with it. PERFECT background for your fantastic acetate die-cut seahorse. AWESOME! And I LOVE that gorgeous shaped die-cut with the loops. So cool. Think I need to do some shopping! :) Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Stencil! xx

Darnell said...

I'm glad you tried again, Ros, because you've made one of the best Brusho backgrounds I've ever seen! The colors are so warm and cozy and so perfect with that ethereal bubbly seahorse cut from acetate. I need to see some videos on die-cutting acetate; every time I try it doesn't quite cut through. And that unique die cut is out-of-this-world cool!! Hugs, Darnell

Diane said...

Another masterpiece!! Love the seahorse...I just purchased a seahorse stamp and love it! I was working on a card for this challenge, but so far it has gone in the trash...not giving up though, if mine could turn half as good as yours I would be happy!!

Barbara said...

It's getting repetitive but this card really is stunning! The colors combined to a beautiful effect and the sea horse is a perfect touch.

Greta said...

This is one amazing creation, Ros! I'm just in awe!
