Another card tonight. I decided to play with CAS Mix up. After flipping through my stencils I settled on a rose stencil by Tim Holtz.
First, I put a gold gel ink pen to the stencil and traced all the openings, next I sponged a very light layer of distress ink in worn lipstic over it. I cut a portion off and mounted it over two strips of gold washing on either side. I added a heat embossed sentiment in gold to finish the card.
This was a fun new way to use a stencil. IF you haven't tried it give it a go. Thanks so much for visiting.
Love your pink and gold colors combos, Cat. Beautiful tracing and sponging on your rose stencil and CAS design. TFS and joining us at CAS Mix Up Stencil Tracing. Stay Safe and Creative, my friend. Love and Hugs...Nancy
A great idea to do the outlining first as the lines are softened a bit by adding the ink afterwards. I love the gold and pink too. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up this month xx
Love how the ink blending merges with the gold outlining. Clean soft colours and so harmonious. Great job. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up!
Such a pretty effect and the pink with the gold is beautiful Cat x.
How pretty is this??!! Love that you outlined the stencil in gold rather than the black...absolutely STUNNING Cat!! :0)
What a beauty, Cat! Wonderful stencil choice & love the color combo!
Very pretty with the stencil tracing, Cat! I've done the tracing in the past - not good! Maybe time to try again... Anyway - love your color combo and the gold tracing looks amazing!!
This is CAS prettiness!
Beautiful design Cat, love the colour's with the gold accents. Thanks for joining us this month at CAS Mix Up!
Pink and gold are so beautiful together, Cat! LOVE your gorgeous rose stenciling. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
We are all slapping our foreheads, Cat... WDITOT moment! Your gold pen is absolutely the perfect choice for this technique! What a pretty stencil - I'll take a dozen roses in those colors any day!
Wonderful card, and all that gold is so rich! Love that technique, it sure adds a lot
This is so pretty Cat!
This turned out lovely. We sometimes forget about those GEL PENS and they are great for adding small touches or in this case, actually becoming an integral part of the design. Nice work!
Gold and pink is such a lovely combination, Cat ... the outlining adds such fabulous definition to your soft stencilling! Hugs, Anita :)
I love how the gold outlines make these pretty roses pop, Cat! Framing the pretty stenciled strip with gold makes it even more elegant! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
Terrific design and colors!
Oh, I like your idea for this challenge, Cat! Beautiful!
