Stencil used as stamp

Over at Happy Little Stampers the CAS challenge of the month is to use a stencil as a stamp. I loved the sound of the concept and got to work, using my Memory Box star stencil as stamp, blue DI and water. I didn't acheive a perfect result, but kind of loved how unperfect it looked, so went ahead.

I added a fussy cut ADFD image, colored with Promarkers and decorated with red glitter. Then I stamped and heat embossed a birthday sentiment from Whimsy Stamps, mounted it all onto a dark blue panel and card base and that was it.

I didn't add any embellies and it's a non fussy card, but I'm worried  it's not CAS enough, but I'll enter it as a CAS card into these challenges and we'll see:
Happy Little Stampers - April CAS: Stencil monoprint
Less Is More - White space but not white
A Day for Daisies - #144 Add Glitter (added glitter to the flowers)
C.R.A.F.T. - #357 Create Your Own Background Paper

Another perfect card in my opinion, Pia!! I pinned it
Love really very much this scene and how as you have created it!! This sky is just a delight, you have made a fabulous work with your stencil! And the little thinking girl is so sweet!! The touch of glitter on the flowers is a pretty detail. Love your work, and I think is a CAS :)

I think your background sky is just perfect, and the stenciling worked great for this look too. It looks quite CAS to me, and I like the image of the little girl enjoying that stormy evening sky. You did beautifully in this effort, and I wish I could have turned out my stenciling so pretty!! TFS & Have a great week. Hugs

So cute and pretty Pia. Sorry I will be probably missing on and off as I have had the very devastating news about my husband. They will be sending him home from hospital in the next couple of days with not much hope. I can't have emails sent to me as they go to both computers and I am having a terrible trouble deleting them from his all the time the ones I do not want him to see.

Hi, Pia! Your starry night background reminds me of childhood days, and our gorgeous evenings here. The mottled coloring is just like a magical night sky! Did you use a resist on your stars to keep them so white? Beautiful card! Very wistful and magical! xo

Sweet, sweet image. Love how you placed it in the corner and the gorgeous background. Beautiful card. Pat K x

Asha said...

I know what you mean about "is it CAS enough". After all these years, CAS remains mystery. That aside, this is a stunning card. It tells a story and leaving me wanting to know more about the little girl. This card is a HUGE success for me... and I'm sure HLS would agree. Well done, Pia!
