ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop

Hi there,

it's time for another ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop over on the STAMPlorations Blog featuring eight new stencil designs by the wonderful Sanna and these are my projects:

  • cut out the largest CUTplorations Manila Tag from sturdy white cardstock and cover it with white gesso
  • add a base coat of color with Paper Artsy Infusions Rocky Road
  • add some tissue paper using soft matte gel
  • stamp elements from the STAMPlorations Scribbly Splattery Grunge set and the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Grunge set with Archival Ink Black Soot
  • apply foil transfer gel through the brand new ARTplorations Leaves 1 stencil and let it dry thoroughly
  • run the whole tag and a piece of turquoise foil through the Mini Minc or a laminator
  • after doing so I found out that the foil adheres to the soft matte gel as well - for this reason I had to use sandpaper to get rid of the foil where I didn't want it
  • use a black Stabilo All pencil to darken the edges of the tag
  • add some splatters with watered-down white acrylic paint
  • stamp the STAMPlorations Dogwood Large with Versafine Smokey Gray onto a piece of confetti white card stock and color the image with Derwent Inktense pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • use hot glue to adhere the flowers over a layer of vellum and corrugated cardboard
  • dye a piece of seam binding with Distress Stain Dried Marigold and Tea Dye and thread it through the hole of the tag
  • add a sentiment sticker at the top left

  • cut out the largest of the CUTplorations Luggage Tags from sturdy white cardstock and cover it with white gesso
  • apply texture paste through the fabulous new ARTplorations Senecio 1 stencil and let it dry thoroughly
  • add color using watered-down Distress Crayons (Scattered Straw, Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, Broken China)
  • add droplets with Color Bloom Tea Stain spray and little splatters with watered down graphite Stabilo All pencil
  • darken up the edges with the graphite Stabilo All pencils as well
  • stamp the giraffe from the STAMPlorations Tweet Love set and color it with Copic, Touch Twin Brush and Delta Markers
  • stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black and add color to the sentiment strip with Distress Crayons (Spun Sugar, Broken China)
  • thread three strands of twine through the hole of the tag

Enjoy the rest of the hop. One winner will get a $20 gift certificate and two winners are allowed to choose three Sanna Lippert Designs stencils. The winners will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog and participating designers blogs. Commenting closes on December 4th, 2017.

Have a wonderful day.
