CAS Stencil Challenge

Hello...
 
What a beautiful day it is here... Sunshine and blue skies
Hubby is golfing and I'm doing housework.. As if!

I got around to finishing a card for the CAS Stencil Challenge



I had a leftover piece from a card I made Here 
A distress inked background, splattered with water then stenciled over using translucent paste... I didn't want to waste that piece but I wanted it to look different from the original so I inked over the dry stenciling with Blueprint Sketch distress ink and this completely changed it.
 
 
I love the result, the way the colours altered... Much more vibrant than the original
 
 
I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the dragonfly and adhered it to the die cut reeds and there we are done!

Just before I go, my blog friend Sue Lelli asked me to share a photo of my Lilac in bloom so here it is



Have a great day and I'll catch up with you soon

WOW...what a difference adding the blue to your background made Ros...LOVE it!! So colorful and your grasses and dragonfly die cuts are the perfect addition! FABULOUS card my friend! And I'm jealous of your lilacs...still to cool here for mine to break out in bloom! Hopefully another week or two will make a big difference! :0)

Gorgeous stenciled background for your sweet and pretty dragonfly. I love how you changed the look of your stenciled piece by just adding the blue ink. TFS and joining us at CAS Stencil Card Challenge. Hugs...Nancy

Wow what a unique effect with the background and the stencilling Ros. Your card is full of movement and colour and the white die cut reeds keep your card perfectly CAS....I love it x

What a gorgeous stencilled background and great added texture, and the blue really gives it a different look Ros, and love the white die cut and added dragonfly. Yor lilac is beautiful too. x

Ros, what a transformation with this little off cut. Gorgeous colours and I love the little grass and dragonfly scene :)

Diane said...

Stunning card Ros, wow...the stenciling is amazing!! Your lilacs are gorgeous and I can smell them here (I wish lol)...mine took a hit with the last snow/frost a few weeks back and so sad that I have very little blooms and they were loaded before that...sigh!! We are to have great weather finally starting this afternoon and we have SUN...finally!!

Maria said...

Such a lovely card, Ros! Wonderful background in pretty colors! Love the colorful dragonfly, also! And, your lilacs are gorgeous! We planted one a few years ago, so we'll have to wait to get big blooms as pretty as yours.

Leslie Miller said...

Have mercy, that's one of the most gorgeous lilacs ever! Nice and full, large blooms and lots of them. Pretty color, too! Now... your card just blew me away with its fabulous wavy background, the reedy die cut, and the dragonfly. You have the best dies and stamps! It's so beautiful! I had a peek at your other card, and I really love the look of that background, too. Doesn't matter, I just love everything you make!

Sue said...

A stunning background and I love the delicate die-cut reeds. The pretty dragonfly is a lovely finishing touch. Thank you for sharing at CAS Stencil!

Pauline said...

Oh my, your Lilacs are gorgeous! I can't get over the size of the blooms and how many they are - just beautiful! Love your card Ros, and what a difference the blue ink makes. You always make such interesting cards with inks and dies. Love this, and the sentiment is perfect!

Barbara said...

Wow, love the way the wings of the dragonfly pick up the colors of the background. And you lilac bloom is amazing... is that a tree I should consider for the garden, I wonder, mmh?

Julia Aston said...

what a stunning die cut you have over your lovely stenciled background Ros- love the spikiness of it! So pretty with the white over the blue! Thanks for joining us at CAS Stencil! xx

Greta said...

OK--that does it! I'm getting a passport & I'll be there for lilac season next year--haha! My poor bush had one blossom this year--but it was gorgeous. I don't have pink & yours may be the most beautiful I've seen! Totally amazing how you changed your left over piece & I do love the card you made with it! Always so creative, my dear friend--love seeing what you make!

Marina said...

I looked at my stencils today. I wish I'd looked at this post first 'cause then I may have been inspired to use them! I love these effects.

Papercraft Boutique said...

Fabulous stenciled background, Ros! I love the way you changed the look from the original. It's amazing to see how much the look has changed by inking over the stencil with Blueprint Sketch. The die-cut reeds and the sweet dragonfly look wonderful with the background.

p.s. Your lilacs are stunning. Lilac is my favorite color!

Tracy said...
