ARTplorations Hop!



ARTplorations is having a super fun stencil hop over the next few days, and a super surprise on Thursday and Friday.

Gotta love anything coffee, [Coffee Cup stencil] and isn't this stencil fabulous!  I sponged on Versamark, embossed with clear powder, and then used the smooshing water color technique for my background.  [For the technique, all you do is rub ink on a piece of acetate, spritz it with water, and lay it on your card stock]  I love the unexpected result you get with this fun technique.  I also used STAMPlorations Fond Expressions for my sentiment.


You can see all the links for the other DT cards HERE on the STAMPlorations's blog.  
Be sure and comment -- there are prizes to be won!


Thanks for stopping by~
