Playing In Paradise Challenge 27 - Stencils or Templates
Wow! This was a real challenge! After 100 million attempts at getting my nesties lined up, this is what I created. I started with plain white Close to My Heart paper. I used a dauber to cover the entire surface with Frost White Shimmer paint. It is really difficult to see the effect in the photo but it is quite pretty. I laid down my "frame" made with the negative images from my Large Scalloped Square and Large Square (nesties). Once again, using my dauber, I sponged on Soft Suede ink. It is quite difficult to keep the color from bleeding under the "stencil" but after several tries, I finally got a nice clean image! I then stencilled the negative image from my Sizzlits Little Leaves in the frame that I had created. I added a few brown dots, a velum butterfly (also daubed with the Frost White Shimmer paint), and the sentiment (stamped with Stazon Ink). I wanted my mat to match the frame so I prepared it using the same technique as the frame. Honestly, this card took 2 evenings to prepare but it was fun and definitely a challenge :)Hope you like my creation!
