CHALLENGE #42 at ADDICTED TO CAS.

Hi lovely crafters - thanks so much for visiting!
Another fortnight has flown by, and it's time for another fabulous ATCAS challenge!

Your Hostess this time is the talented Shana, and here is her Code Word ~


***********


I seem to be addicted to stencils at the moment - probably because I love inking, and a stencilled card can be completed fairly quickly, which is a bonus! 
I thought this Memory Box "Garden Birch Tree" would be perfect for the Sky theme, so out came the Faded Jeans distress ink pad - applied with Cut-n-Dry foam.
Before inking, I popped a circle mask under the stencil to create a "moon".  
After inking  I removed the mask, leaving the stencil in place, and added a very light touch of ink on the moon. 
To complete the scene I used the MB Deer Trio dies and some clear glitter on the ground.
**********

 For our CAS Perfectionist there is a prize of  5 free digis from our generous sponsor - Kathryne at StampArt Designs .


Happy Crafting ~

Thanks Lisa - as I mentioned in my Post, this is a MB stencil, but I believe there is also a die very similar to this.
