CAS Stencil Card Challenge - Reminder


Hello friends!  Just a reminder that there is still time to link up your card for the February CAS Stencil Card Challenge. I am hosting this month and I’m challenging everyone to use ‘Foil’ with your stencils. As always, there are several links to techniques over at CAS Stencil Blog for your inspiration.


I started by blending distress inks to create the background, then adding transfer gel over my stencil and let it dry overnight. I used gold foil and ran it through my laminator to create the 'warp speed' pattern. I colored the little astronaut with Copic markers, popped him up on the center of the background and placed it behind the octagon frame. Lastly, I added a few tiny stars...Here is a close-up of the foiling:


There's lots of Design Team inspiration over at CAS Stencil Blog - as well as from our talented Guest Designer, Steph ~ And, don't forget there are also a few links to video tutorials. You have until the 24th to link up your card...I hope to see you there! 

Thanks so much for stopping by.






Supplies:
Stamps: MFT - Space Explorer
Dies: MFT - Space Explorer,  Linked Octagon Frames, Tag Builder Blueprints 6            (tiny stars)
Stencils: Altenew - Warp Speed
Misc: Deco Foil - Gold; Gel Pens - Black & White

This is a fantastic design to use with that cute little astronaut, Barb! I'll bet that foil really schparkles in real life! I might have to put that octagon frame on my wish list!! Hugs, Darnell

What a great stencil to use behind your astronaut Barb - it really gives the feeling of warp speed! and I love that wonderful frame die you used - what great lines on it! Thanks for this great challenge that allowed me to buy some new stuff (!!) and to learn a great new technique to use on our cards! xx
