In Your Comfort Zone

I saw on Lin's blog that WPlus9 were having a challenge to make a card within your comfort zone... using their stamps/dies.   I have two WPlus9 sets.... Fanciful Feathers and Fresh Cut Florals with their matching dies.

Of late I've been doing a bit with stencils...after taking the On-line Card Class, and today got some more stencils so I thought I would combine the two.

I started by using some paste over a new TCW stencil "Mini Chervon Tiles"  Once they dried, I spritzed with some blue glimmer mist and then used my SU Spray thingie with some blue and green Tombow pens.  I next die cut some die cut two feathers from some card also spritzed with blue mist.  I edged it with a grey marker and added some white dots.   The sentiment is from the Fresh Cut Florals  set.  I used two sentiments.  I layered the panel onto some shimmer card then onto the card stock.  I added the flowers with a bit of black twine.

I had fun making this ~ in my semi CAS style... not too many embellishments.  Think I could have added some sequins though. 

Had fun yesterday, on my day off for our National Holiday... cleaned my oven (using a tip I found on FB using Ammonia) then had a good amount of time crafting, getting a few things done.  Will share more later in the week.

Thanks for visiting.
