Hello! A bit of stenciling...and stuff.

Oh my.  This summer is chock full of busy!  I haven't had much time to create lately, but I made sure to carve out a bit of crafty time this afternoon.  Fun stuff!  A little stenciling, die cutting, heat embossing and a few enamel dots.  Yup...I needed that. :)

I'm playing along with 2 fun challenges.

CASE Study #197

CAS(E) this sketch!

And, here's my take on the 2 challenges.

These colors are actually much, much softer in real life.  I don't know if the problem is my camera, my editing software...or me.  Hmmmm.

Anyway, I used a new Simon Says Stamp stencil with a mini ink blending tool to create my background.  Love, love, love blending some inks. :)
I added 2 heat embossed, die cut feathers, a die cut hello and 3 enamel dots to finish my card.

Ahhh.  I thoroughly enjoyed some crafty time today.  Now it's time to get busy again.
