Use a Stencil


     Today I have a card which I created with some fun stencils I found at Tuesday Mornings.  They are from Tattered Angels.  They are called "seaside/under the sea" Glimmer Screens.  I added a digital fish that was from Pinterest, a few glitter gems from Recollections, a sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamps.  My background was made with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die.  A plain pink card is my base.  The fish was colored with a water brush and Distress Inks and the coral background was also done with the same inks.

I would like to enter this at:

Less Is More:  Recipe Challenge #282 which is Use a Stencil

That is a rare CAS card from me, and I love how this came out.  Just keep swimming!

A perfect card for LIM Mary Anne! Back to the drawing board for me as I had an underwater scene in mind using a ripples stencil I have - but yours is much nicer than mine would have been anyhow!

Lovely to see you in the Snippets Playground :)
