Stencil Hop Part 1

Hi there,

Sanna has created some fabulous new stencils and for this reason we are having the Stencil Hop over on the STAMPlorations Blog. I created two very different projects for this occasion.


On my first project I used the ARTplorations Lattice stencil to create a background for my image:

  • cut a panel from watercolor paper and apply Distress Oxide Inks (Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Twisted Citron) through the ARTplorations Lattice stencil
  • mist the pattern with Pearlized Water for texture and shine
  • stamp one of the adorable images from the STAMPlorations Little Love Birthday Wishes set with Memento Tuxedo Black and color it with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versamark onto a strip of black cardstock and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • layer a piece of black and white patterned paper underneath the sentiment strip


On my second project I used the ARTplorations Barley stencil:

  • cut out an ATC from patterned paper using the CUTplorations ATC/Tag Builder die
  • apply transfer gel through the ARTplorations Barley stencil and let it dry thoroughly
  • run the ATC through your Mini Minc with some rose gold foil
  • grunge up the edges with a black Stabilo All pencil and a wet watercolor brush
  • stamp a frame around the ATC using the dot pattern from the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Grunge set and Archival Ink Black Soot
  • stamp the first part of the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Art Marks set with Versamerk and heat-emboss it with Ranger Rose Gold embossing powder
  • write the second part of the sentiment with a dip pen and Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White
  • add splatters with watered-down white acrylic paint


I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop.

Hugs,
