Stenciling + Stamping

I'm squeaking in under the wire here for a submission to this month's Make It Take It Challenge with Craft Stamper Magazine.

The only requirement is to incorporate stencils. I chose to use a couple of stencils to create the green and purple background. First, I used a piece of sequin waste. I applied Distress Peeled Paint ink with an ink blending tool through the holes to some white cardstock. Then I selected a Heidi Swapp stencil and sprayed her Color Shine spray in Amethyst on top of what I'd already stenciled.

The sentiment is from a new Mama Elephant stamp set I recently ordered (Merci). I stamped it on a smaller piece of white cardstock with Hero Arts Black dye ink. Then I stitched it down the left side of the panel onto some black paper. 

The Merci set also includes a few small flowers and leaves. I stamped those on a scrap of white cardstock, also using the Hero Arts Black ink. I cut them out and layered them onto my stenciled background using Glossy Accents.

To help my stenciled background stand out against the white cardstock base, I mounted it onto some black paper with a subtle grid pattern.

Till next time,
