Less is More - Stencil

Another fun challenge is starting today over at Less is More!  This week our code word is Stencil!

So many fun options with this code word.  I was torn between doing something inky or using molding paste!  Hope you have time to come on over and play along!

Here's my take on the challenge!

I started by using my newest stencil with my favorite distress ink colors.

I then stamped and cut my main image and colored him with copic markers.

I added a few splatters (with my stamp--I do like control :))  Then added my sentiment!

I enjoyed making this card, that I ended up making another one with similar colors and theme...

Same idea for this card, only instead of the black splatters, I adhered some stars to add a bit of sparkle.



  1. Beautiful blending on your stencil Susan and your images are just terrific. Have a super week.

  3. Oh, I love both of these. They look so cute against that stencil (ANOTHER thing on the wishlist, aaaaggghhhh!) and beautifully CAS. Just gorgeous! x

  4. Two fab cards Susan... and both such bright and cheerful fun!
