Another Stencil

Earlier this week I shared a make here with Brushos and Stencils. As I had the Brushos out and my first attempt turned out OK, thought I would try another!
I think I may be getting hooked on stencils! And I am going to blame it on some (talented) crafters over at CAS Mix Up as I wouldn't have bothered with stencils if it wasn't for them deciding to start a new challenge - CAS Stencil.

This amazing flower was amongst the pack that I got from AliExpress and I used Scarlet, Orange and Yellow for the petals and a teeny amount of Brown for the centre.
Once again there was panic when the colours began to pool together!

I wasn't sure about the way the centre turned out initially but it grew on me as I waited for it to dry.
I randomly added some small seed beads to the middle.

Opted for no sentiment as think the bold flower makes enough of a statement on it's own!
I had some odd bits of coloured card which were a good match for the shades I used so after cutting out my flower with a stitched square die I layered it onto them.
A few Brusho ink splats on the base card and done!
Also sharing over at ATS+M where the challenge is Make Your Mark

We have rather a nasty stormy day here and normally wouldn't consider venturing out - but lack of cooking facilities mean we don't have a lot of choice so it will be coat/hat/boots/gloves for our daily meal out trip!
Have a great day whatever you're doing and thanks for visiting! x

Wow, that looks great, I'm very thrilled. I have to try it again, because the first time my colors always went under the template. That did not give a nice picture.

It's beautiful and eye catching and doesn't need a sentiment. I've never got on well with stencils. It's very bad of people to be leading you astray, now you'll have to get more!

Absolutely stunning Viv. A masterpiece on how to use Brushos and stencils together. I love the colours and especially how you did the centre. Nope it doesn't need a sentiment....glorious as it is x.
Hope this storm passes soon and hope the daily meal trip out will soon be dry and not so windy x.

Gorgeous stenciled sunflower with your Brushos, Viv. I love how you added the colored layers of narrow framing and a few Brushos splatters. I agree, no sentiment needed. A beautiful work of art, my friend. TFS and joining us at CAS Stencil Card Challenge. Hugs..Nancy

I think the colors blended together beautifully. And the beads added to the centre is a nice touch too. And no sentiment needed, personally I wouldn’t be able to chose a spot for one either.
