If all else fails ...

... Make Art!

This card started as an experiment. I wanted to see if I could create a layered look using brushos through 2 layering stencils (Altenew Dahlia) that I had not used as yet. It did not come out the way I had hoped. I think I might have had a better chance of success if I had stuck to one colour, which I did not. Anyway, I did not want to let my panel go to waste, so I decided to do some distress ink blending over my brusho panel using the 2 stencils again. I die cut a panel from my large piece, but have not turned it into a card yet. Instead, I used the strip that was left to create this super CAS card. All I did was heat emboss a sentiment (by Wendi Vecchi, from a Ranger bumper pack that came with a  crafting magazine from the UK earlier this month) using gold embossing powder and adhere it to my card base using liquid glue.

I'm playing at:

CAS Stencil - Powdered inks

The Flower Challenge - #29 Use your latest stamps or dies


  1. TFS your CAS double stenciled with Brushos panel, Marianne. Wonderful stamping and heat embossed gold sentiment. So pleased you joined us at CAS Stencil Card Challenge. Hugs..Nancy

  2. You've made a gorgeous card from your experimenting Marianne! Love the strip of bright colours which really pop against all that glorious white space. Perfect to keep it CAS by just adding the gold embossed sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Stencil! xx

  3. Such a clever card Marianne, thanks for sharing with us over at 'The Flower Challenge' ;) Viv DT xx

  4. A great mix of colors on your stenciled pane Marianne! So glad you tried this technique and shared with us at CAS Stencil! xx

  5. Very artsy and unique and very brave to use the two stencils with the brusho's. One fabulous CAS card with great colours x

  6. If that is a "safe" - wow, it's amazing!
    Cheers, Barbara

  7. I love that you decided to give something a go, it didn't entirely work out, but you made something of it. Too often I just throw in the bin! I love the colours! xx
