ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop - Day 3



It's Day 3 of the ARTplorations blog hop, and today I'm using the Leaf Prints stencil.  I sponged Distress Inks (Crushed Olive, Shabby Shutters) through the stencil, then added Peeled Paint Distress Marker for depth.  I stamped the grungy dots from the Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds set, but it looked like the leaves had blackspot, so I stamped the netting over the top, and added netting stamped in grey in some of the white space areas.

The frame and sentiment are from the February/March 2015 STAMP Club set, Blossom Overture.


Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team, but before you go, leave me a comment for a chance to win:

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.

Hope you've enjoyed the hop and are inspired to play with your stencils!
