Welcome friends and visitors! Today marks the start of a new challenge at A Vintage Journey The theme 'Stencil It' was chosen by my talented teammate, Astrid.
Astrid describes her challenge: "Create a project using at least one stencil, in a style that fits our challenge focus - vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling; industrial, timeworn or steampunk. There are so many possibilities to be creative with stencils on your cards, journals, layouts, ATCs or 3D projects. Stencils offer endless possibilities, be creative and have fun!"
I met a lovely lady recently who asked that I make her sister a birthday card using some products from her own stash (shown above). In addition and not shown, there was a store bought card with a butterfly she wanted me to include. Her rules were to use her goodies, use blue, and include '70' so it would be quite noticeable.
I layered the stenciled card over the pink, embossed designer paper which I colored with Distress paints in Picket Fence and Weathered Wood, dried and edged in Ground Espresso ink. This was layered over the provided vellum paper which I blended with Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers inks.
The little blue butterfly was fussy cut from The Funkie Junkie's business card Linda attaches to her thank you goodie bags. I simply edged it in Ground Espresso ink.
That's all for me today! If you haven't come by way of A Vintage Journey I hope you'll take a few minutes to pop over to see all the amazing inspiration by my fellow Creative Guides! And then it's over to YOU! I can't wait to see what you'll make for our 'Stencil It' challenge!
Thank you for your visit and for your lovely comments!
