Welcome to the brand new CAS Stencil Card Challenge .....

Hello there ...... I'm back again

It's happy dance time today, to celebrate the launch of a brand new Blog Challenge (I do love a good challenge don't you?!)

Do you like using stencils?  Or do you have a collection and you're not sure where to start with them? Do you like to use different techniques and different products?  Is Clean and Simple your style? 
Well ...... you are in for a treat. 
It's time to get the brand new CAS Stencil Card Challenge underway ...... whoo hoo!
The latest addition to the CAS Challenge family, from the lovely Loll Thompson

I'm so excited to be part of this fabulous, and talented Design Team.  This is going to be fun!

Each month we will have a theme ..... based on either a technique or a particular product.  To get things started we have a nice easy one for you ...... Sponging

Simply create a card in the CAS style, using the sponging technique with your chosen stencil.
If you're not familiar with the technique then check out the CAS Stencil Challenge blog for links to some fab videos.  You can also find all the challenge details, the rules etc. on there too.

I've used one of my favourite Tim Holtz stencils here, and simply sponged Distress Inks through the design directly onto my card blank

A nice stamped sentiment  .......

A few sparkly sequins ......

And I finished off with some splatters of gold ink

I also added part of the stencil on the inside of the card too .....

Check out the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team have created, and then why not join in the fun.

Happy stenciling!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time ....
