ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop Day 3

Hi All,

welcome to Day 3 of the Flash Stencil Linky Party over at STAMPlorations. Today's piece of stencil inspiration cam about when I decided that I wanted to use some form of watercolour with the stencil. I also wanted to try out how my Twinkling H2Os would look on black card ....

First I dry embossed the Delicate Links stencil on a piece of black card using the appropriate Big Shot sandwich. With my stencil still attached, I picked up some of the pattern using Navajo Pearl and Plumeria Twinkling H2Os, before adding some gems and dots using my glittery gel pen. I heat embossed my sentiment from the Bloom Sketches set in gunmetal Kerpowder! and layered everything as seen ...

That's it from me for today. Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to join the party. I shall be back soon.

Have a lovely day!
