Welcome to the ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop. This is where we, the STAMPlorations Girls, put our stencils through their paces.
For today's project I worked with the Floral Mania stencil, which co-ordinates with the VIGNETTE Eclectic Florals stamp set, to make this card using the stencil only.
First, I used my stencil to de-boss the flowers by creating the correct sandwich and put it through my Big Shot. Next I sponged yellow and turquoise to create my yellow-green-turquoise background. I removed the stencil, cleaned it and inked it well up with some orange, spritzed it with water and 'stamped' it on my card making sure that I aligned the stencil as much as possible with my de-bossed pattern. Once dry, I stamped my sentiment from the Fond Expressions set, layered on my base card and finished with some paper ribbon.
Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here. Feel free to leave comments as you go along. Every comment will be entered into a prize draw. Commenting closes on 29th May and the winners will be announced on 30th May. Good Luck!
