CAS Stencil March's Top Picks


We were so pleased and excited to have 56 entries trying this stenciling technique.  Many of you said it was your first try at it and all of your results were beautiful and inspiring!  We are so happy to have you on this journey with us as we all learn to use our stencils in different ways!

Our Top Pick for March
Michele's card has such a lovely ghosted woods stenciled background with the beautiful blended colors she chose of Cracked Pistachio, Weathered Wood and Hickory Smoke and it really caught our eye!  The detailed village die-cut overlay completed her wonderful card design and set off the background perfectly!

Congratulations, Michele!

March CAS Stencil Challenge


Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Julia.

Check out the Top Picks from February's Powdered Inks challenge HERE.



Message from Julia
Julia here, as host  for today's stencil challenge. Ghosting is a fun technique where you color a water color panel using water soluble crayons, inks or paints.  Lay your stencil over the colored panel and rub over it with a baby wipe to remove the color - leaving a 'ghost' of the stencil image!  We hope you'll try it out this month!
