Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at JUGS - Just Us Girls where I am honoured to be the guest designer this month!
The theme is use a stencil and the design team have some wonderful cards to inspire you, so I hope you can play along.
I've been playing with stencils and crackle paste or glitter paste recently but thought I'd use texture paste for a change. I watched some of Tim Holtz's demo videos and tried a few things for fun!
This card uses a bright and bold panel spritzed with a few distress stains.
It felt a bit flat so I spritzed on glimmer mist for some shimmer, some of it is sitting in the nooks and crannies.
Needed some butterflies to cover up some blotches and used a new to me vine diecut in black as well to tone it down a bit lol!
I'm linking up to these challenges:

Beautiful colors used together and the texture is lovely. I love the vine and great way you covered up the oops. The shine really shows through.
Such a pretty, bright card! Love it :)
This is so bright and beautiful and I love the texture on the pretty flourishes, and the contrasting black flourish, butterflies and sentiment look gorgeoous over the top. Congratulations also on being this month's Guest Designer over at Just Us Girls. x
Congrats on your Guest DT gig! I am loving this pretty background. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful card with us at the HLS die challenge blog!

The silhouette looks lovely over that amazing stenciled background!
I love all the bright colors and texture, Cathy. So great to have you designing with us this month.
Cathy... so thrilled you are with us this month! Love the glimmer mist! The distressed colors are wonderful.
Congratulations on being GD over at JUGS with this beautiful card. Love your amazing background made with stencil, crackle paste and distress stains. Just perfect to highlight the beautiful black die cuts ! thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at ATSM.
Love the idea of colouring over your texture paste ... something I have not tried. Beautiful results, especially with the added shimmer. xx
This is beautiful! I love the depth that the texture paste gives this and the blended colors are beautiful! The black die cuts look fabulous against that beautiful background.
Wow, Cathy - this is just beautiful. I love the texture and the colours you used, and the black die cuts really pop against all the colour.
Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM and I hope you will join us again soon.
Echoing the others: that background is positively swoon-inducing! The black die cuts really set it off! Wonderful inspiration for this JUGS challenge and delighted to see you over at two HLS challenges as well!
Love your shimmery stencilled background Cathy. Just gorgeous. Flourish in black is a real stand out with the black matting.
