STAMPlorations April 2021 Stencil Extra Challenge

Time for our STAMPlorations April Stencil Extra Challenge.

ARTplorations Slimline Riotous Blooms Stencil.
Bee's Knees Layered Butterflies.

 I am loving this wonderful Slimline Riotous Blooms Stencil.
I secured the stencil on my glass mat using 3M masking tape. Then used Distress Oxide Inks and applied diagonally using i-Crafter's
i- Brushes to blend the colors.  

Removed stencil and used MISTI to stamp the butterflies with Archival Jet Black ink.  Stamped the sentiments from the same set and added a bit of embellishment with SU White Perfect Accents to the center of some of the flowers.

Attached layer to SU Cucumber Crush 4" x 9" card base and Done!
I was very happy with the Springtime Slimline design.

  1. Blogger ate my description...I stenciled the Slimline Riotous Blooms (a favorite) using Distress Oxide inks and then stamped with with Shirley's Bees Knees Layered Butterflies stamp set that included the sentiments. Added the white gems and attached to colored cardstock. Fun and easy card. Enjoy...Love and Hugs...Nancy

  2. I thought you had been a bit sparse with your words! Love that stencil and the colours. I love that you have just used the butterfly outline too. I haven't entered this one for a while, perhaps I will get my stencils out this weekend and have a go xx
