My 1st project..a Fall Tag. Using Sanna's New Barley Stencil.

ARTplorations Barley StencilCUTplorations Stitched Tags Nesting Dies,
and STAMPlorations Typografia Thankful-Full of Thanksgiving.

I used the Stencil Monoprint technique to make a background using Sanna's new
"Barley" Stencil with  Bisters Pigment Powders.

I used Bisters: Yellow, Mahogany, Natural, Orange and Red Powders.

Sprinkled light amounts of powder thru the stencil that was taped to Mixed Media
paper and then spritzed with water.  Removed stencil and set aside the background to dry.

Next I die cut the background using the 2nd to largest nesting tag die.
Placed tag in MISTI and stamped the sentiment using Archval black ink.
I stamped several times to get good coverage.
Removed and let dry,  then spritzed with Shimmer Spray.

Added retired SU ribbon and twine and done.
I am really pleased with the results.

My 2nd Stencil Project

My 2nd project, a Feel Better Soon card using Sanna's New Cornflower Stencil.

ARTplorations Cornflower Stencil by Sanna,
CUTplorations Feel Better Soon Phrase Die and
 CUTplorations  Crazy Double Running Stitch Retangle Nesting Dies.

I had so much fun watercoloring this new Cornflower Stencil with my Zigs Markers.
I used 3M masking tape to secure the stencil to Strathmore Mixed Media paper.

Then added layers of Zig watercolors using an aqua painter to help move the ink.
When done I die cut the stenciled background and set aside.

Die cut the "Feel Better Soon Phrase" with 2 layers of white CS and 2 layers black CS
and attached layers with SU Fine Tip Glue Pen and weighted down with
large acrylic block until dry. Added to stenciled background.

Attached card front to card base and added copper stickles to each flower. Then Done!
