a brilliant work of art

Hello there. today's card is a CAS one layer card inspired by the latest LIM challenge. the theme is to use a stencil.

So I decided to use a stencil that was still waiting it's turn same as the stamps. I started with the stencilling and distress ink. I used squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade, abandoned coral, candied apple, wilted violet, seedless preserve, crushed olive and peeled paint.

 Then I stamped the sentiment and brush from Claritystamp in black archival and heat embossed in clear powder. Then I added the drips from a Visible Image set and again heat embossed. Same for the yellow paint splodge.

Finally I added some silver and black wink of stella to the paint brush. And there is my CAS offering for today, Theresa xx.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
