Hello my crafty friends. I was determined to make a CAS card using stencils which was the challenge over at Less is More.
Hopefully it is a quick post today. I used this very versatile stencil called Jo's bubbles. Using brushes I inked with cracked pistachio distress ink and then mermaid lagoon.
I faux bleached with water and a paint brush little areas over bubbles to create dimension and added a highlight with a white pen.
I stamped the fish with black archival ink and used the same distress markers to colour it in. Then I highlighted it with clear wink of stella which is really difficult to see.
I stamped the sentiment in lower right hand corner.
Stamps and stencil are from Claritystamp.
So i hope you like my CAS card, Theresa xx.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
