STAMPlorations December Stencil Anything Goes Challenge

Time for our year ending December 2019 STAMPlorations Stencil Anything Goes Challenge!
Our STAMPGirls will be sharing Reminder projects on Dec. 15th, 2019.
Our next Stencil Challenge will be January 1, 2020!

We would love for you to play along!  You do not have to use STAMPlorations products,
but we love it when you do:-)

Here are the Challenge Guide Lines and Prizes!


Basic A2 Panels Nesting Dies,
Autumn Falling Stencil and Skinny Sentiments Dies.

I began by laying my "Autumn Falling Stencil" over mixed media paper 
that I had die cut with CUTplorations Basic A2 Panels Nesting Die.  
Then secured stencil with masking tape.

  Next sprinkled Bisters pigment ink powders over stencil 
and spritzed with water to blend the colors and reconstitute the inks.
I used Yellow, Red and Mahogany inks. Loved the color combo!

Then carefully lifted the stencil and removed tape and turned over the stencil onto
another A2 die cut piece of mixed media paper to transfer the excess ink.
I laid a paper towel over stencil and gently moved and blended the wet ink with my hands.

I used the paper towel to carefully blot excess ink from the original positive 
stenciled mixed media layer and the 2nd monoprint layer.
I will save the positive stenciled mixed media image for a future project.

Steps for designing finished card:
1) Die cut A2 background and 2 smaller panel dies with "A2 Panels Dies:. 
2) Die cut white craft foam for the 2 largest panels using same dies.
3) Attached foam to A2 background and 2nd panel and attached to card base.
4) Inlaid 3rd smaller panel.
5) Die cut Hello using CUTplorations "Skinny Sentiments" Dies. I am loving the "Skinny
Sentiments" Dies, which has 7 words and 7 shadow backgrounds:-)

Done!  Thank you for reading all my description:-) Hugs..
