Welcome back to more summer fun and stencils.
Here's this week's creation:
Yes, more sparkle! I have been teaching many glitter/stencil classes the last two weeks, so this is a natural off-shoot of that. Plus, this why you don't toss those little pieces of the double stick paper. You never know when they will come in handy!
Here are the stencils I used:
Dreamweaver Stencils: LJ899 Petals and LS4 Nautilus
Dreamweaver Double Stick Paper
Hawaiian Coconut Soap
Art Insititute Ultra Fine Glitter
Background stamp by StampaFe
Old Paper Ranger Distress Ink
Soap the Petals Stencil
Peel off one side of the protective paper on the double stick paper
Lay sticky side down on the soaped side of the stencil
Choose two contrasting colors of glitter
Use the first color to fill in the stencil, use your finger to push the glitter into the spaces on the stencil
Lay the stencil glitter side down
Keeping the stencil FLAT, peel off the paper
Don't just peel off the backing paper, you are peeling off the entire paper
If you missed a spot in soaping, you will find out as the paper will adhere nicely to the metal
Repeat with the petal stencil to create the number of background pieces you desire
Trim the double stick paper to fit the nautilus
Soap the nautilus stencil
Peel off one side of the backing paper on the trimmed double stick paper
Stick to the stencil
Fill the shell in with blue glitter, rub in with your finger
Remove the paper from the stencil --keep the stencil flat!
Stamp the background of the kraft card stock with the text stamp and Ranger Distress Ink
Peel off the backing paper on the glittered pieces and layer on the card
Layer the card stock
