I was lucky to win the stencil I used for my card from ClarityStamp which is in the UK. Sadly I'm not seeing this particular stencil in their shop right now. While it is intended for use on an A5 card - I simply adjusted it to create my own 'slimline' card that fits perfectly in a #10 business envelope:
4 x 9.25"
Are you ready?
Armed with these Oxide inks, and a makeup brush,
I went to work - well, I went to play really!
I always manage to get a blob somewhere when
blending … Cat helped me turn a negative into
these sweet clouds!
It was easy peasy to trace that stencil - the key
is taping it down so it can't move around!
Thanks, Nancy, for making me stretch through your fun technique!
Michele, it turned out fabulously...both your card and our try at video crafting. The line drawing really makes the image pop from the stencil. Gorgous! Okay...no more video crafting on Monday's. LOL.
This is brilliant, I love the cloud effect in the sky and this stencil is perfect for the outline technique which really helps give definition. The birds look great with the 2 colours. Well done you. So glad you and Cat had a good session together, her card is a cracker too xx
hahaha there is always a 'blob' somewhere round here too lol. Love it Michele, the clouds in the background really make that sweet image pop!
I absolutely love this stunner of a card Michele. A great stencil for the technique and glad you had a fun crafty time with Cat x.
What a fun stencil and you've worked magic with it! The clouds are fabulous!
WOW! This IS the perfect stencil for this technique! The sky with the soft clouds is perfect! Awesome card, my friend! So much more fun than laundry! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
Oh, how fun! Your blue birds have taken flight! Great job on your boo boo fix too.
Awesome design, love the stencil you used. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up this month.
Hi Michele...so pleased you joined us at CAS Mix Up Stencil Challenge:-) Love your in flight stenciled child and birds. Your free hand tracing really added wonderful definition to your image. Love the clouds in the background too:-) Stay safe and Creative, my friend. Love and Hugs...Nancy
Looks great, Michele, Jo x
So cool, what a beautiful stencil and I love this technique! Lucky you to have won the perfect product!
Well, look at you go!!!!! What a fabulous stencil, and a very successful result with this technique!!!! And one thing about distress inks and blobs, there is usually a way to fix them. Beautiful card, my friend!
Guess you're a stencil girl now, Michele ... this is wonderful ... dreamy and playful ... the outlining really makes it pop! Hugs, Anita :)
What a neat stencil and what a fabulous card you made using it! How fun for you, too, to have a video play date with your friend. So much fun going on in your neck of the woods! Those birds look amazing and so does your cloud background. So much to enjoy on this card!! Way to try something new, too! Thanks for sharing, Michele. :) Hugs!
Wow, this card is amazing Michele, and so CAS! I love that stencil. Your background is perfect, those blue skies and fluffy clouds are perfect-one would never know they was a mishap/blob. You did a great job of outlining your stencil too my friend. Yep, guess you are a stencil gal now! Hugs, Brenda
I’m going to have to try this. It’s beautiful! I need to try the slimline size as well.
I love these happy bluebirds flying off to brings smiles and love to the recipient! These are really great Michele! Take care - Red : )
Love the colour you've achieved on the birds, a fabulous slimline card style using Clarity's stencil ... many thanks for popping over & commenting on my blog! Steph x
That image is pure joy! Gorgeous card!
If this doesn't win, I'm going to wonder who the judge is...followed by a long protest letter. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the image and how you colored it...especially those fabulous bluebirds.
I love this, Michele! Just saw it on insta, and I'm itching to give it a try! Love how you adjusted for a slimline, so smart!
Wonderful card!! Love that stencil.
Pixie Spray works beautifully with stencils too...just a light spray on the back and you'll love all your stencils again Michele...promise!! But anyway, on to your card...AMAZING!! I love that stencil!! And your background just couldn't be anymore perfect to go along with the stencil too! And the tracing is like the cherry on top! FABULOUS card my friend!! Hugs. :0)
Perfect, Michele! I don't know where the "oops" was but your clouds work wonderfully and your card is too cute for words!
What a terrific card for the challenge! The clouds look amazing!
Well, check you out, girlfriend! At first glance, I thought the birds were die-cuts! You did such a great job ink blending this stencil and your tracing is flawless...WOW! I also really love how you created the sky in the background! Another stunning card!!!
This is such a happy card, Michele! Fun, fun stencil! And it looks amazing in the colours you've used. And the outlining really adds a special touch. Happy you enjoyed your stencils this time! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
Delightful, I love the free spirit in this card Michele. Love the blue tones and the touch coral. GREAT JOB, thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up! xx
You used the stencil perfectly for the slimline card, Michele! I love the design and the gorgeous sky with sweet clouds. The black traced lines are so effective!
