STAMPlorations; ARTplorations Stencil Hop





Welcome to the STAMPlorations ARTplorations Stencil Hop featuring Sanna Lippert Designs.

For my first sample I used the ARTplorations Evolution Stencil.

I sponged on ink in rainbow colors for the stenciled background.  I also used Balloons & Banners for my  happy birthday sentiment, and Kathryn's Big Wishes for the fun balloon.


I went on to create a ghosting effect with the Flowers 2 stencil.

I sponged on color with some distress inks, laid the stencil over the top, and spritzed with water for the ghosting effect.  I also used the Layered Holly stamp set, and the Merry Christmas Word Art Die.

For lots more inspiration, pop on over to the STAMPlorations Blog.  There are 8 different Sanna Lippert stencils being featured today.  You are in for a super fun time!  Don't forget to comment as there will be 1 winner of a $20 gift certificate, along with 2 winners of 3 of the stencils featured today chosen from the participating blogs along with the main STAMPlorations blog.

Have fun!!


Thanks for stopping by~
