Stencilled Day 3


Day 3 of Stencilled, and it's about texture and dimension.  I don't have any modelling paste, I just use Polyfilla (or spackle, depending on which part of the world you are in).  I coloured some Polyfilla with gold Adirondack Metallic Acrylic Paint Dabber.  The sheen didn't translate into the paste, but at least the colour did.  I butted two pieces of card side by side and taped the stencil centrally over them, because I only wanted partial coverage.  Anything to cut corners.  I had some paste left over so I stencilled some leaves on more card, but because that's thicker/larger areas, it hadn't dried, so I'll finish them tomorrow.

Once the piece was dry I sprayed it with gold shimmer rain mist thingy stuff, cut a butterfly from gold card and leaves from vellum and stuck it all together and added some pearls.

Here's a closer look.  You can see the gold spray better:


I'm entering this into Divas By Design, a new one to me, and the challenge is Anything Goes.
