CAS Stencil August challenge

Welcome to
  CAS Stencil August Challenge 
 I am the host this month
and the challenge is to use your Stencils with
or Mists

Firstly though I'd like to say that I don't own a load of commercial sprays.. just these three
but I have mixed a few using my Brushos and Magical Micas.
 and you may own intricate stencils (pink one), you can use other products like the mesh or cut your own (blue one)... or even use your dies to cut shapes which I have done using metallic (not the mirror one) paper or baking paper

Here is my card
as simple as spraying your colour through a stencil

This is a lovely intricate stencil, I did use the bright Cherry Pie Dylusions spray and I was so pleased with the's not perfect with some bleeding but I thought it was cool to use just on it's own for my card.
Trimmed the panel, stamped and silver embossed my sentiment on a white card
and used foam sheet to attached the panel...

I even made a spray box because I have made a mess on my desk before and this works a treat.
Can you see the metal baking tray underneath?  -- my Misti magnets worked so well in holding the stencil down flat

and the helpful hint video say to spray from directly above, lightly, which helps with bleeding.

Now it's your turn, try to keep it simple I think - and pop over to the CAS Stencil blog and check out the gorgeous 'spray stencil' cards from the design team 
and our two lovely Guest Designers Hilary and Amy

Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy card making


  1. I love this Robyn, lovely vibrant colour and what a good idea re the box and magnets. I shall have to try it as I am always making a mess of my desk xx

  2. Great tip of the metal pan beneath the spray box with magnets Robyn! I use a pizza box to contain my mess!
