Texture Paste Holly UFO


I went on a rummage through my UFO box and found a some mixed media paper which had been embossed with texture paste and when the paste dried the stenciled area and watercoloured. The stencil is replaced to watercolour.
The swatch was quite big so I cut it down and added a black border to create more of CAS image.  I used another stencil to to the background for a hint of colour.



I'm entering this for

  2. What a lovely offering from your UFO box, Christine, and so perfect for the holly challenge! I love how you've framed the design with a bit of black and skewed it over that gorgeous sentiment!

  4. Great mixed media CAS card, and the bright holly looks pretty as you've used the swatch. What a brilliant idea. I've used a stencil to do some holly before, and it just didn't look very good. If I'd tried this, may have salvaged something. I like the way you've placed the element on the front of the card with the dark matting. TFS

  5. Love the bit of stenciling on the card base! Great background for the focal image - it really works being cut down to such a small piece - makes for a great CAS card.
