CAS Stencil Nov. 2019 - MONOPRINTS

Hello friends.  It's all about MONOPRINTS at the CAS Stencil Challenge this month.


This is one of my favorite techniques to do with a stencil, and since I have a new stencil from FUNKY FOSSILL DESIGNS, I had to have a play with it!

 

I apologize for my lighting, but IRL the colors are much brighter!  I used the Leafy Mandala stencil as a snowflake and used Ocean Mist and Applemint inks from Gina K to ink up the stencil before misting with water and then pressing into my cardstock.  Once it was dry, I attached a white frame (PTI's Pierced Feature Frames) and adhered both to a white card base.  Lastly I stamped my sentiment from SSS/Gina K Festive Flower stamp set and was done.

I was inspired to make this card from a ink blended card that Gina K did, and I shamelessly CASE'd her card, just using a different stencil and sentiment...


Once I made this card, I got to thinking how cool it would look as a monoprint too, and that's how my STENCILED MONOPRINT card evolved!

Make sure you check out all the BEAUTIFUL cards from the DT and then play along right HERE...this challenge is open till the 24th.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
