We have a CAS Challenge over at The Paper Players! This week, our challenge host, Laurie, is asking us to create CAS cards with the theme “BLOOMS“. Looking at my card, you might think it is not CAS. True… there is not as much white space as I would ordinarily like to use. However, this card is beyond words… simple.
I used a new layering stencil from Altenew with Zig Art & Graphic Twin Markers on watercolor paper. I didn’t bother taping down the stencil. I laid the stencil where I wanted the first image, picked one orange and green marker, and loosely colored the stencil in, adding water as I colored. I rotated the stencil and added the next layer of color, adding water as I colored for the watercolor effect. Don’t worry about edges or lines in the stencil. I repeated the process and added a couple of additional blooms. As I completed each color addition, I flicked my brush off across the image. To finish, I stamped the sentiment, die cut the image and mounted to a red base card.
Seriously… this card took 10 mins tops! I will definitely try this technique again….such a wonderful way to use a stencil.
Supplies: Altenew Watercolor Bouquet stencil, Altenew Sketchy Floral (sentiment), Avery Elle Wonky Stitches, Versafine Clair, Zig Art & Graphic Twin Markers, Kuratake water brush
