Time for the reminder post for the CAS Mix Up Challenge,
which is Stencil Monoprinting....
Hosted by the talented and very creative Nancy.......
Fabulous inspiration awaits you in the gallery and
from the wonderful design team.
Our talented guest designer this month is Cathy from Cathy's Card Spot.
If you've time, pop across and take a look.....
This is my card......
I have used stencil Monoprinting, stamping and my choice is heat embossing and doodling.
I popped on two shades of Lindy pink magical powders onto the stencil and sprayed with water.
I then quickly flipped it over onto the watercolour card and pressed it down.....
Letting the powders do their magic.
After it had all dried I stamped and heat embossed one of the butterflies in white.
Then doodled in black and white inks around the butterflies
Finishing with stamping and heat embossing the sentiment and the edge on the left in black.
I decanted some of the blue Lindy spray into a water colour brush
and lightly water coloured the background.
This is such a fun and unique technique often producing artsy backgrounds.
I am looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery.
Thank you so much for stopping by....
Challenges I would love to enter....

Gorgeous card Mac! LOVE your beautiful butterfly monoprint. Amazing shimmer from the magicals ... and how clever to use a waterbrush filled with colour for the background. Thanks for the tip!! I'm going to try that! Your finishing touches are perfect ... doodled, stamped and embossed butterfly is so pretty, and the black heated strip and sentiment are a wonderful contrast to the lighter colours of the print. Great work, my friend! xx
Your creation is amazing! I just love your take on the stencil monoprinting technique! The touch of black really sets those butterflies off beautifully! Thanks for sharing the details! HUGS :)
I love your pink and blue colors Mac - your butterflies are so pretty with the black and white dots to add definition to their outlines - the bold black sentiment is perfect over the stenciling! Julia xx
Gorgeous Stencil Monoprint butterfly background with your Magicals, Mac. I LOVE how you added all your doodled circles around each butterfly in an artsy creative way! Love your black strip along one vertical border too. I have never tried adding magicals to my aqua brush for watercoloring. Such a creative and pretty addition to your butterflies. TFS your beauty, my friend. Hugs...
Mac, so totally cool, I love the white gell pen and the stamped butterfly. awesome artsy card
Oh Mac what a wonderful use of the stencil, and fabulous result!
wow Mac, Loving this and the colours are spectacular. My couple of attempts doing this technique were a disaster and kept the papers for die cuts, maybe another attempt before the challenge is over and think I am spraying maybe too much water...hugs.xx[aussie aNNie blog] ♥ ♥
Fabulous effect and I do so like your doodling around the butterfly. Hugs Mrs A.
You make it all sound so simple, I Love the colours and the great sentiment and butterfly, a very Beautiful card Mac.
Your stencil monoprint butterflies turned out beautifully. And I love the way you added the pale blue wash around them. I must try doing a monoprint with magicals. Love the extra touches of the black strip and the doodling.
What a 'Magical' creation you have here M. Looks super with the blue wash and all that doodling on those pretty butterflies is a great finish. The black side is also a nice touch to marry together with the sentiment.
What a great idea for watercoloring the background, Mac! And your Lindy's have dissolved and blended so beautifully! I played with Lindy's yesterday and had a less than stellar experience. Guess that means lots and lots more practice! Your doodling takes this to another level! Fantastic, my friend!
Gorgeous butterfly Magicals monoprint, Mac! I’m sure it looks more sparkly IRL. The Lindy spray light blue background is beautiful too.
Heat-embossing on the butterfly and doodling around the butterflies are a creative additional touch and they make your card unique. I love it! Hideko xx
Gorgeous look on this monoprint, and some very pretty colors too! I liked your extra details with the doodled butterfly very much. TFS & Hugs
Magnificent and ‘magical’ monoprint butterfly card! Love the super stunning shimmer! The colours are fun and flirty for your fluttering butterflies. Wonderful work! x
This card is a beauty. I love the stencil, the colors and the way you put the black around the butterfly. You did an awesome job!
More gorgeousness here again Mac! I am never sure what I will see on your blog next as it provides endless new ideas and such beautiful cards too. Another stunner here, great design and love the pretty butterflies too ;) Viv xx
I love this! Your work is always spectacular.
Such a beautiful design, Mac! A greatly made stencil monoprint combined with the addition of colored mist. As always, your creation is from the top shelf. Incredible inspiration.
Such a pretty design. You always add that special touch, and that butterfly focal point is no exception. This card must truly shine in real life. Fun colour combo too. Beautiful, Mac! xx
Beautifully artistic card, Mac! I love the black embossed strip down the side!
Such wonderful fluttery movement, Mac ... gorgeous colours ... love the delicate tiny dot doodling! Hugs, Anita :)
I adore this technique you achieved fabulous effects with those sprays, so much more controlled by using a water brush, I never think to use mine for anything but water. Those doodles around the Butterflies really make them come alive. Love that left hand black strip it really blinkers the eye to focus on your design. Clever creation & I LOVE it.
Hope you have had a super weekend ?
Creative wishes Tracey xx
Mac this is gorgeous. Beautiful coloring and a fabulous layout!
It's so beautiful Mac... I mean who doesn't love butterflies but you've taken this to a whole new level! Wonderful card!
Pretty card and great design, Mac. I love the beautiful beautiful and the huge sentiment. Kisses, my friend.
OMG! I was thinking of using this stencil, but I could never do it justice, now that I've seen your masterpiece!!! This is amazing Mac!
Beautiful Mac! Such a great technique, I don't remember seeing it before? It looks lovely, I must give it a try sometime! Have a lovely day! Hazel xx
Mac thank you for your sweet and inspiring comment on my monoprinting. I like to give the DT a big wrap up as you all do a fabulous job and inspire me to the limit. I have learnt so much just visiting your and the DT blogs and loved the monoprinting so much I plan to do several more this weekend..
This is beautiful. I love the softness of it and outlining the butterfly really made it outstanding.
How fabulous! The little details - the dark strip down the left, the doodling- really make this a great card.
Absolutely gorgeous, Mac ! I didn't have time to use this technique and to play along but I took the time to admire all the beautiful DT cards and the gallery. So many inspiration in there ! I love how neat and perfect this technique looks on your card. The white doodling adds such a delicate touch. Absolutely stunning and eye-catching ! J'adore ! Hugs xx
Wow Mable your stenciled monoprint butterflies turned out beautifully. Love the colors.
Thanks Mac for your visits, yes the mice are back, I had 5 emails and some requests would you believe to put them back. Must be the animation I did on them....xx
Wow this is so pretty and creative Mac! I would never have thought of using a stencil that way and I'm inspired to have a try.
I love what you did with that stencil....the doodling adds such interest.
This is just gorgeous! And I am glad you gave the instructions, because just looking I wouldn’t have had any idea. TFS!
The doodling really adds another dimension! WOW!
