Muse #51 + SSS & CAS(E) This Sketch #62 + Stenciled OCC + LIM Rainbow


I have two cards to share today - this first one is for the Muse Challenge #51 where we are inspired by this card from Marion Vagg. I'm really enjoying playing with some of the techniques from the Stenciled class at Online Card Classes, so used a little modeling paste and distress inks to create
 my chevron/zigzag pattern at the bottom of the card.







I  never seem to have any masculine cards when I need one, so used Marion's basic design, but added a little twine instead of the floral elements. This will also be linked up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to use twine or string.




This next card is for the CAS(E) This Sketch! #62 challenge.





A Tim Holtz stencil and four Distress Inks blended to create this rainbow. The stamp is from Technique Tuesday and highlighted with my Wink of Stella (yay - I finally found it in a local scrapbook store).



A few colored gems finish the card off.

ETA I am linking this card to the Less is More Rainbow challenge - my first time playing along with them.





Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

  8. You did a great job with your stencil techniques. They even highlighted your "celebrate" card. That one also qualifies for the challenge at Less is More - rainbow.
