Pretty as a picture

Hello everyone,

and happy Wednesday.  Today is my turn to host the challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog. 

I chose the theme : Stencils. I love using stencils. They add another layer to your backgrounds and lots of interest too. Use them with paint, ink, model paste or even gesso. So I would love to see lots of stencils used this week ! Have fun! 

Here's my art journal:

I started with my newly acquired Dylusions paints and I think I like them. I used orange, yellow and pink. I then used two stencils to add interest. 
The first one was 'Lace' by Tim Holtz which I used with model paste. I love the 3D effect. The other was 'stripes' also by Tim Holtz and I used that one with Distress inks in orange and pink. It gave a very subtle stripy effect in the background. 
Next I started stamping. I used "Barcode" around the edges and "Ticket for Paris" in the background. 
The main image is called 'Moth Fab' and she is one of my favourites. I stamped her directly on the page and again on white card stock. I coloured the one on the white card stock with Copic Markers and cut her out. She was adhered to the page on top of her 'sister' image. That way you don't have to worry about all the fine detail, you can just cut it all off. The little frame is a die cut. 
Lastly I drew a few fine lines around the edge of the page and made the sentiment with a label maker. 

I used the following stamps:

Why not play along with us? You could win a $30 dollar voucher at the end of the month. Just remember, only one entry per person per challenge and NO digi's! 

Have fun..
