Hello Sunshine

Happy Saturday and welcome! I have a new card to share today for our new theme at Allsorts challenge. This week Dena is our host and she selected "Stencils" as her optional theme. I love using stencils! But as mentioned it's optional so if stencils aren't your thing you may still join us with up to 3 new creations of any kind. We have prizes from Oakwood and Highlight Crafts for challenges 778 and 779. Winners will be announced at the end of May as this challenge ends in May. (Remember to check the challenge blog for the April winners if you haven't already!)

This daisy stamp is brand new to me, the purchase was inspired by my blogging friend Pauline so I decided to ink it up for today's card. It's from the set Daisy Grunge by Visible Image. 

My sketch was very much inspired by the current Try a Sketch On Tuesday challenge. I just wish I had used a larger circle mask.

I started out by inking the negative of a circle die cut using Stampin Up ink then used my Circle Explosion stencil over the inked circle. After removing the circle mask I decided to add more circles onto the rest of the card so I continued with the same stencils but a lighter touch of ink.

The daisy was stamped on a scrap piece of card stock and fussy cut and I only colored the center of the flower. Sentiment is part of the same stamp set. To finish off this CAS card I added stickles glitter to the flower and black enamel dots

I plan to link up with these challenges:

Beautiful card Ellie - love the subtle stenciling over the balance of the card, and your daisy is stunning

What a beautiful card! I just ordered some stencils from Taylored Expressions and tried them last night. Definitely a learning curve for me. Stencils and die cuts seem to be more "in" now in card making than coloring with Copics and stamps.

That daisy is awesome (and might end up in my stash). The subtle stenciling in the background makes this card pop! Thanks for sharing this over at TSOT. -Laurie DT

That is lovely! I've been playing around more with stencils lately in my card making-- that and new ink techniques. It's a lot of fun but I don't always feel like I know what I'm doing.
