ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop - Day 2


Welcome back to Day 2 of the ARTplorations stencil blog hop at STAMPlorations!  Today I've got a sympathy card using the masks from Bloom Silhouettes.  I sponged Distress Inks over the masks, then scribbled the outlines with a fineliner.  A few blobs of Fossilised Amber for the flower centres, a sentiment (from Blossom Overture) and a scribbled corner and some splatters ;) and it's done.


So here's how to play along.  Comment on this and every other stop on the hop each day, and enter the flash linky party (details below) for maximum chances to win.  You can see all today's stops here on the STAMPlorations blog.

Prizes:
  • FIVE (5) winners will receive their choice of ARTplorations stencil (standard size - 5x7). Winners will be randomly drawn from all comments left on the designers' blogs.
  • ONE (1) winner will receive a $15 gift certificate OR her choice of 2 ARTplorations stencils (standard size - 5x7). Winners will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog.
Extra prizes for those who participate in the Flash Stencil Project Linky Party and link up by December 13: 
  • TWO (2) winners whose projects feature stencils (any brand) will each receive their choice of one (1) ARTplorations stencil (standard size - 5x7)
  • ONE (1) winner whose project features an ARTplorations stencil will receive her choice of three (3) ARTplorations stencils (standard size - 5x7) OR a $15 gift certificate to the shop.

  9. Sympathy cards are difficult, but necessary to make every now and then. This one is beautiful and will certainly be of comfort to its recipient. The yellows are lovely, and I do so like your own hand in the details. Soft and pretty. Bev
