TCC #36 and ARTplorations May Stencil Hop- Day 3



Today is day 3 of ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop and the beginning of a NEW challenge at The Card Concept.


I was inspired by the color green and pretty white frosting. on all those cupcakes in the TCC photo.
  • I started with watercolor paper, and several colors of distress inks sponged on heavily...i.e. lots of color. 
  • Spritzed the back of the stencil with water and placed it on the  inked paper..let it dry without lifting the stencil up. 
  • When dry and before lifting the stencil, I used the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer Tool and lightly misted some more color.  
  • NOW lift the stencil to reveal the butterflies!! oh so pretty:) 
  • Then I stamped Trendy Butterflies in gold over the top of some of the revealed images. 
  • I like to "shadow" the butterflies with a grey marker.  
  • The sentiment is gold embossed on vellum and simply wrapped around the BG paper. 
  • A bit of washi finished the edges.  
  • PPP SPRINGTIME mix LG flower sequins and SSS Tiny Flowers Sequins in VANILLA add a nice pop of sparkle for the butterflies to dance around:) I used Tiny 1/8" clear ZOTS to adhere them.
