Still doing "stenciled" homework

Hello Crafters,

it's the week-end! Yay! And we have a tight schedule, as usual. Grandparents, school friends, swimming with Dad, my sis-in-law... I don't think I'll have much time for crafting, but:

I already did it! I created two matching Birthday cards, I do hope this is a sign of my returnung Mojo.

The Stenciled class has been over for ages now, but it seems I am not yet done with homework. Still trying to get back in the flow, I created the first card after Kristina's sketch with the Tim Holtz Splatters stencil. I really love that idea, I'll probably make a million different versions of it.

After I created the splatters, I added the die cut sentiment, created a shadow with an alcohol marker and added the same die cut on top, because I stained the first layer with the marker. Then I added glossy accents to the sentiment, just because it's new and I wanted to try it out.
I sponged the card base, added the panel with foam squares and sponged a splotch on the envelop and the inside of the card.

For the second card, I kind of stayed with the same color concept, adding soft pool and soft granite ink to the three original colors.

I took the idea from Jaquie  and greated a bokeh effect, sponging different sized, overlapping circles. Then I inlaid the sentiment die cut and added sequins from the dollar store (actually the euro store) in matching colors. This time I left only a very slim colored boarder and sponged the flap of the envelop. 

That's it for today, I hope you have a relaxed and creative week-end
