I love to get messy in the creative process. This week I did just that and I couldn't wait to share it with you!
First think I did was spray my white cardstock with a couple of different colors of mists. After that dried, which did not take long at all, I placed the cardstock on some scrap paper and taped the template over the top. I then grabbed my white acrylic paint and a sponge and went to town. I am absolutely thrilled with the end result.
After that dried, I trimmed out a piece to use as the background of my card. Of course there was absolutely no doubt which image I HAD to use. Nothing else would work with tie dye nearly as well as Boho Chic from the Sampler Edition 2 drawn by Elisabeth Bell exclusively for SCACD.
After coloring up the image and cutting it out I set it off with some black swirls cut with my nesties. They needed just a touch of 'something' and Viva Decor pearl pen in white was IT.
I also decided that it needed a butterfly. This one is one of the chipboard Maya Road butterflies. I love the variety of designs and the size these come in. I used a sponge to cover the chipboard with the Viva Decor paper pen in white. I then sprinkled it with Dreamweaver Stencils Metallic FX in purple satin. After shaking off the excess and returning that to the jar, I rubbed the butterfly with my finger and this gorgeous pearly finish appeared. After it dried, I backed it with black cardstock to show it off better before adhereing it to the front of the card.
Now it is your turn to go do something with stencils. Don't be afraid to get messy. Just spread some newpaper around before you begin!
