April Stencil Sunday

Hello, Crafty Friends!

Welcome to another Stencil Sunday in April. May I take the opportunity to remind you of the current Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. As you know Anything Mixed Media Goes as long as it is not a card and you use at least one stencil.

My DT contribution for this Stencil Sunday is ... a 'merci/thanks' ATCs

I decided to work with some new toys and others I hadn't used as yet. I randomly coloured a piece of Mixed Media paper using no 16, 17 and 18 of my new Prima Tropical watercolours. I also added lots of splashes and allowed to dry.
To create my background, I sprinkled Golden sands Infusion Powder through the Emanations stencil, spritzed with water and allowed to dry before clear embossing over the pattern, adding more no 17 watercolour and plenty of outline doodles. I blended with Early Espresso ink and added a coat of gesso.

Next I stamped the solid flower in Crushed Curry on my watercoloured MM paper and die-cut them using the matching flower.I die-cut some leaves, some more flowers from gold mirror card and layered everything up as seen before finishing off with a stamped sentiment, some matching sequins and copper Stickles.

I hope you feel inspired to create something different, maybe even do some up-cycling or re-purposing .... 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.

That's it from me for today. I shall be back soon with another project to share.

Have a lovely day!
