ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop Day 5

Day 5



Hey everyone!  There's a great stencil hop going on over at STAMPlorations right now!  Come on over and check out all the awesome ways some of the design team girls used the fabulous stencils that are available at the STAMPlorations shop!

There are some fabulous prizes to be won if you come hop with us and comment along the way.  More details can be found at the STAMPlorations blog.
(Commenting closes on December 13. Winners will be announced on December 15.)

Here's what I made...





I placed my stencil (Nestled Circles) on my kraft card base and sponged on white ink.  Then, leaving the stencil on, I splattered Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers Distress ink.  I didn't mind that it bleed underneath the stencil a bit. Added extra interest, I think.  Once the stencil was removed I added a strip of teal glitter tape and stamped the sentiment (Balloons and Banners set, Dee's Artsy Impressions line) in black.  Then I die cut a butterfly (SSS) and glittered it up with some dazzling diamonds glitter (SU!), added a iridescent pink rhinestone and attached it to my card.

Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here.

Hope you all come join in on the fun!  Have an awesome day and thanks for stopping by!
