Bluebird Color Palette - SCS CAS Challenge

Hello blogger friends!
It's been quiet around here, hasn't it? Spring Break was last week and the family and I were on the road to do a little house hunting for our next move this Summer.  Ah.. the adventures of military living!  It was successful and now that that is behind me, I am back with more to share with you all. 

Today I wanted to play along in the SCS CAS challenge of Bluebird Color Palette.  This color scheme is so pretty and just screams Springtime.  It gave me a chance to play around with a stencil I had that hasn't been used to make a birthday card.

For this, I placed my stencil where I wanted it and applied a little piece of washi tape in a few places to hold it.  I sprayed some watered down acrylic paint and used a tissue to dab the excess around it.  I then sponged some Distress Ink in Pumice Stone around while the stencil was still in place.  Once I got the look I wanted, I took off the stencil and layered it to a piece of SU! RR cardstock.  I used a birthday stamp from Stampabilities that I have had and fishtailed it to a piece of matching SU! BB cardstock to match the base. That is then popped up over the main panel.  I finished it with a few self adhesive rhinestones and pearls.  Super easy and makes for a quick card.

Well, that is it for me today!  Be sure to check back early in the morning tomorrow for Your Next Stamps April digi release.  Super cute images that you don't want to miss! Plus, you will have a chance to win some! Have a great Monday!!
