A Rose I - My 2nd ATC

Happy Sunday, lovely Crafters!

Today is Stencil Sunday, and I want to take the opportunity to remind you of July's Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. As the title suggests I am currently getting my head around ATCs, and this is my second one .....

I sponged a piece of white card with pink in, spritzed it with water and using turquoise ink and ARTplorations Stencils: Bubble Dance stenciled a few bubbles down one side. On a piece of newsprint paper I created my rose using ARTplorations Stencils: Build Me A Rose, two shades of green pigment ink, clear embossing powder and cherry sparkle medium. Before stenciling the rose bud, I blended the background with turquoise and a little pink.
I decided on where exactly to put my rose panel, stamped my sentiment, Bold Sentiments: Explore, partially down one side and on newsprint and fuzzy cut where applicable. All that was left, was layering up, doodling some borders, adding a few squiggly details, pearls, gem and sequin.

I hope you feel inspired to create something different .... why not link it up with the Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. The theme is always Anything Mixed Media Goes except cards which means projects such as tags, ATCs, canvases, layouts, art journal pages etc,are perfect for entering, and you must have used at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. The challenge will close at the end of the month. You can find the full challenge details plus more Mixed Media inspiration here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

I am entering my ATC at:
Addicted to Stamps and More - Make your Mark, used marker for doodling
Moo-Mania - Anything Goes
Sisters Of Craft - Anything Goes

That's it from me for now. I shall leave you with one last look at my ATC ...


Have a lovely day!
