STAMPlorations April Stencil Reminder

So many inspiring projects from our very talented STAMPgirls designers!

My list of STAMPloration Products!

Clear Stickers New Day

I stenciled ARTplorations Helen G's "Make Marks 4" on Strathmore Mixed Media using
make up brush to blend Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover inks.

Of course I could not waste all the ink on the stencil so spritzed with water and
flipped the stencil over onto
another piece of MM paper and placed a paper towel over the stencil and rubbed 
with my hand to spread the inks.  Now another background for a future project:-)

Next used one of the Hearts from the "Zen Hearts" stencil over Mixed Media and
watercolored with Zig markers and water brush. When dry removed stencil.

Then used Ultra Fine Tip Black Sharpie to outline the heart images and heart border.
Fussy cut and set aside.

Die cut border for the monoprint background with Crazy Double Running 
Stitch Rectangles Nesting Dies.  Attached heart,  added 2 sticker sentiments.
Punched 2 butterflies out of Alcohol Ink on Yupo scraps.
Popped up butterflies, added Wink of Stella to heart and Done!

 Wishing you a bright and cheerful day.  Take care,  my friends.  Hugs..

  4. All artsy, all vibrant and unique and an eye catcher of a card Nancy x. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the other background from teh stencil x.

  5. Wow! That's different and so bright and happy... I love it!

  6. What a bright and cheerful card, Nancy! The watercolored artsy heart looks awesome with the black outlining. The shimmer of the heart must be more beautiful in real life. The placement of the pretty butterflies and the clear sticker sentiments is perfect! Hugs.. Hideko

  7. Wonderful layering of stencils. I LOVE the bright colours of your beautiful heart, Nancy! xx
