Addicted to CAS- SUN

Happy Saturday.  This month, I have had the honor of being the Guest Designer at the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog.  This week the code word is "SUN".  Such a perfect inspirational word for this time of the year.  
I masked the edges of the front panel then placed my stencil on my card stock.  I then sponged on Ripe Persimmon, Festive Berries, Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink over my stencil.  I kept moving my stencil slightly after each sponging.  It gave me a lovely look of rays of sunshine coming down.  I sprinkled some water drops onto the ink for interest.  I removed the mask then stamped the sentiment and mounted the panel with pop dots.


I am also adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- YOU GOTTA HAVE FRIENDS

Simply Create Too- YOUR SENTIMENT IS HIGHLIGHT

Brown Sugar- STRIPES OR DOTS

"Just Us Girls" Challenge- YELLOW, ORANGE, NEUTRAL

  27. Absolutely gorgeous, Karen. I love how you left white space between the image and the base layer. The bold, black sentiment really pops and the water was the perfect finishing touch.
