It's time for the next challenge over at The Fashionable Stamping Challenge and for the next 2 weeks Ellie has chosen 'Use a mask or a stencil'. Well this was a really easy one for me as I love using my stencils, the hard part is deciding what to make ! I've not made many cards lately and I needed one for a friend so thought I'd combine it with this challenge.
I started by blending Distress Inks over some white card doing some Spritz and Flick. I then used the Wendy Vecchi leaves stencil with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.
I used the Mini Spinning Top stencil with more Picked Raspberry DI and the Mini Numbers stencil with Mowed Lawn DI. I then used the Wendy Vecchi Dotty stencil with Snowflake Fresco Finish paint.
I made a panel using more Distress Inks and stamped the Wendy Vecchi leaves with Fern Green Archival ink, using second generation stamping. I then used the Lin Brown Eclectica stamps, stamping onto black card using Fresco Finish paints. For the leaves and tulips I stamped over them with a PaperArtsy Mini text stamp.
I painted a wooden button and also stamped some text over it. The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Simple Sayings set and is stamped onto card that I blended Distress Ink over.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects.
