Be Free - October Stencil Sunday Project

Hello, Crafty Friends!

Welcome to October's Stencil Sunday over at STAMPlorations. May I take the opportunity to remind you of their current Mixed Media Challenge. 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 set of colourful ATCs

I started with some watercolour card, randomly added some torn pieces of newsprint paper and some bits of a negative Lowercase Alphabet die-cut before covering it all with watercolour.

Once dried, I brushed some ink through the Crisscrossed stencil and outlined some of the shapes in black before randomly adding white craft ink

I die-cut my butterflies and spritzed them with gold Artiste ink

I stamped and embossed my sentiments, added the butterflies, doodled an outline and finished of with pearls and sparkly enamel dots.

I am entering these ATCs at:
UK Stampers Forum FB Group - October ATC Swap

Here are a few close-ups ...

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!
