CAS at Addicted to Stamps and More

I am getting used to the clean and simple challenges now thanks to Addicted to Stamps and More where they have this sort of challenge every few weeks. This week it is a free choice of subject.


I bought a stencil template and hadn't a clue what to use it for-it is rather nice and was from Imagination Crafts. I started out with a piece of white card, my brayer and a big and juicy ink pad. Next I used the brayer to cover the stencil thinking the ink would go onto the card--wrong! I turned the stencil over onto the card and it left a really nice image--the one you can see on the backing card and the flowers. Then I sprayed gold spray paint--a very nice removable variety--using the stencil--that doesn't show up at all on the picture--sob sob.

A bit of gold backing paper for the leaves that were on a card I received ages ago. Then I stamped thank you straight onto the card--clean and simple-hopefully.

Even though you struggled with this a bit, the outcome is certainly worth it! I love your background paper that you made with the stencil ... and the fact that you used it for punching out the flowers too! Great mix of colors. Thanks for joining us at ATS&M.
