Maculine card with stenciled background

Monika of Creative with Monika is celebrating her birthday with a special CASE challenge, you can read more about it here.

I chose to CASE one of her masculine cards - her card is the small photo at the bottom of this post.
Monika seldom uses DPs, but she's an expert of making her own backgrounds, either by using stamps or stencils.

I made my own stencil with a die from Poppy and I stenciled with embossing paste onto kraft. I used my sneakers image, heat embossed with black EP, and I die cut the image using a stitched oval from Dienamics. Apart from the drying time of the paste this card came together really quickly.
I hope you like my version of your card, Monika!

I'd also like to enter this card in these challenges:
1) Monika's Birthday Linky Party
2) Allsorts - Quick and easy does it
3) The Male Room - #08 Using Letters and/or numbers
4) Simon Says Stamp - Make your own background

So stylish card, Pia, your background with paste is just fabulous!
I don't know exactly what means the word CASE in papercraft. I think it means "copy but with some changes", it's right?
Have a lovely week

Wow!! Pia that stencilled background is awesome. You are one very clever young lady. I would get the paste everywhere or smudge it when taking the stencil off. Love the image too it is great.

A brilliant card Pia, your stenciled background is perfect, such a good idea to make your own stencil and your image would work for both boys and girls.

Great masculine look. Your paste stenciling is wonderful against that subtle kraft color background..really shows up the imagery. Super idea to use your die cut as a stencil too. This is just a fab look. TFS & Hugs
