ARTplorations Hop - Day 1


Hi all!  Are you having fun seeing all the amazing stenciled cards?  I love being able to design with ARTplorations Stencils!  Just a tad bigger then the card stock panel, makes them easy to tape down and still get great coverage on your card panel.

Today I am featuring ARTplorations, Oh My Stars! Stencil;

Using distress ink, Lawn Green and Peacock Feathers, I sponged over my stencil, blending the colors to overlap.  Once done, I removed my stencil and sprinkled water on to the panel for a watermark effect.  I used STAMPlorations Bee's Knees, Newlyweds [colored with Copics] for my image and adhered on top of a washi banner.  For once, I actually need a wedding card - yay!


Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here.
 The most important fun part:
Prizes:
SIX (6) winners (2 winners per day) will receive their choice of ARTplorations stencil. Winners will be randomly drawn from all comments left on the designers' blogs.
THREE (3) winners will each win a $15 gift certificate. Winners will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog.
Have fun - and Good Luck!!  I'll return tomorrow for Day 2


Thanks for stopping by~
