CAS Stencil Card Challenge - Sponging


Hi there blog friends...Happy New Year!!!

Today is the start of Loll's brand new card challenge - CAS Stencil and I am honored to share that I have been asked to join the DT! I'm a big fan of stencils, so this is going to be an exciting adventure ~

Loll is our Hostess, and she has chosen  'Sponging' for our theme. She has also shared several links to videos on the Challenge Blog, so feel free to check them out! 


I used a brand new stencil that I bought from Sarah Gray's Folksy Shop called 'Surfer' and sponged the details with Distress Oxide inks. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine ink and embossed with clear EP. I also spritzed the images with Sheer Shimmer Spray, but it's hard to appreciate it on screen. Clean & Simple with pretty shades of blue is all that was needed for this card ~

So, check out all of the beautiful cards my Teammates have created on the CAS Stencil Blog and go dig out all of your old stencils and join us for a really fun challenge! I will be back on the 18th with another card and a reminder if you should need one :)
  
Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: Avery Elle - Handwritten Notes
Stencil: Funky Fossil Designs - Surfer
Ink: TH Oxide inks - Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean
Misc: Imagine Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray (Sparkle); Ranger - Super Fine Detail Clear EP

Wow, this is fantastic. I love the stencil and your sponging brought it to life. The water looks so real. I don't think I've ever seen a surfer stamp or stencil before so this is great.
