ARTplorations Stencils Blog Hop - Day 3


It's Day 3 of our ARTplorations Stencils blog hop and today I've gone for the Shutters stencil.  I placed my stencil over a piece of card twice the size the you see here, and stencilled Spun Sugar and Pickled Raspberry over the stencil, turned it by 180 degrees and stencilled Salty Ocean into the gaps.  The overlap gives some nice purply shades.



I cut the piece in half to fit my card, so I have another piece which is a near mirror image of this panel to use on another card - bonus!  I mounted this panel onto purple card, then onto the blue base card, stamped the sentiment (Sentiment Builders: Happy) and added three nail heads.


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 receive a $10 gift certificate. Winners will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog.
