STAMPlorations January 2020 Reminder Stencil Challenge

Be sure and check out the awesome STAMP Girls DT projects!
You will be inspired by all the DT projects using stencil(s).  

I used these STAMPloration Products for my card.

Sanna Lippert Designs, Tapestry Stencil  
Life in Full Color (sentiment)

Another Ranger Alcohol Ink background from my stash using Sailboat Blue and Mermaid.

 I laid my "Tapestry" stencil over a piece of Yupo paper and
secured with masking tape.  Then dripped Alcohol inks thru the stencil.
You do not get perfect stencil images,  but a cool artsy look.

I die cut the background with a "Basic A2 Panels Nesting Die".
Then  placed Tapestry Stencil over the Alcohol Ink background and
traced with Ultra Fine Tip Sharpie Pen.
I really liked the artsy look and color combo.

Popped up panel with White Craft Foam onto cardstock and
stamped and fussy cut "Life in Full Color" sentiment and attached.

Another QCAS card stencil design.
Hope you get to play along with us at STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge, Anything Goes.
You have until January 31st to join the fun. Hugs..

  8. Wow! I love the alcohol ink with a stencil and have never dared do it myself! It makes such an amazing background! The black inking makes it look dimensional! Love the addition of the lines! An awesome card, my friend!

  9. Another fabulous technique you're sharing with us, Nancy! I love the AI colors and the organic way of coloring (or stenciling I should say). The panel is so artsy, unique, and beautiful with the Black traced tapestry pattern. Thank you for your wonderful inspiration!
