Pulling out the stencils

CAS Stencil has challenged us to pull out our stencils and do a little blending.
I used a Carablelle stencil and some distress oxide ink and to add a little interest I stamped the sponging with the stencil in place.


Here is a close up of the touch of stamping on the sponged area,





I'd love to hear your thoughts 😃

  19. This is so pretty in pink and grey Christine and what a great idea to stamp the small script over the blended ink which adds something special to this beautiful design. I love the added die cut wildflower and the coordinating white on black sentiment. x
