Stencil Sensation

 Hi!  The Funkie Junkie Inspiration Ave has us being inspired by the new stencils from Tim!  I played around with the Stampers Anonymous floral deco stencil and tried to show how versatile it is! 

The stencil was beautiful with distress oxide inks, distress inks, and inky sprays!  I started with just a soft background with distress oxide vintage photo ink.

I accented the background with a shimmery pink spray from the mica stain spray.  A few different die cut flower and butterflies sprayed and sponged along with a beautiful quote from Robert Browning.

Then I used the stencil to sponge on a soft blush pink and then shifted the stencil slightly and sponged again with a brown oxide distress ink. 

I stamped the four leaf clover multiple times and fussy cut them to create flowers to attach on the front of the card.

I layered the flowers and used a few pop dots to make the butterfly float above the flowers.
Finally I finished with a blend of die inks sponged on the stencil.

I sponged the bottom with a brown and blended into green and then blue.  I then stamped and colored a flower to place over the pattern.  

I hope this has you pulling out your stencils!

Thanks for stopping by!

Out of the Vault II

 Hi!  I have been playing with the new dies from Sizzix in Tim Holtz where they have remixed dies into the new release Out of the Vault II.  The Funkie Junkie Inspiration Ave provided me with the globe die and I am so happy to be able to play with the set! 

On my desk I had pulled out a variety of background created previously in other projects. I cut them up into ATC size backgrounds and pulled them out to use in my ATC's with the new dies. 


The background of this one was a mix of mica stain spray and distress ink stain spray.  It was stamped over with a soft distress oxide ink and text.  

Then the globe was die cut and sponged with distress oxides to layer the world along with the clouds onto the atc.  The plane was cut from an embossed silver background.  

Then I added a cute stamped sentiment.  

Next I  used a similar color scheme background with a kraft base.

The world was die cut from the backdrop paper and the plane was sponged in distress oxide ink. 

The sentiment was stamped to coordinate.  

The globe and plane with arrows all are a great size to use on the ATC's or smaller tags.  The letters are a perfect size for sentiments on a card base. 

Thanks for stopping by!
