CAS Mix-Up November - Stencils

Loll has brought back the stencil monoprint for this month's challenge at CAS Mix-Up. I don't always have the right stencils or get good results but this time things were going well and I ended up making two cards. 

This one uses an old PTI stencil with Distress Inks.  The panel was cut down and mounted on ivory cardstock.  The sentiment from HA was stamped on a scrap of the watercolor paper and cut with an MFT die that fit perfectly along one of the lattice slats.  A little sprig from TH finishes it off.

This one uses another older PTI stencil but this time with Brushos.  It looks like waves so I added the seashells from Honey Bee, colored with Zigs.  The sentiment is from Altenew.  They are individual words and it took forever to line them up but I like what it says. 

There's still time to enter this challenge and if you don't know about making a monoprint the description and a link to several videos can be found on their challenge blog.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you take time to unwind.
