Simon Says Stencil It


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is


Stencils are all the rage right now, there are so many things you can do with them! You can use them as masks to create fabulous custom backgrounds, you can spritz, sponge, stipple, use a blending tool to 'smoosh' the colors, use several layers of stencils to create a collage design effect. You could also use embossing paste to create texture, there are lots of fun techniques to try.  You are never quite sure of how it will look until you remove the stencil and then your design is revealed!  You can also use them to emboss a delicate design onto paper or card stock.
 You can use store bought stencils, or you can make your own masks using die cut, or hand cut shapes.

We are showcasing THE CRAFTERS WORKSHOP PRODUCTS this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I used Mini Viva La Art 6x6 Template and made a wall hanging for my craft room :-)

I really had fun making this. I started out with some sticky back canvas and painted a layer of gesso over it. I then scribbled some aqua, blue and pink Gelatos over the top and blended them using a spritz of water and my fingers. 

I then used the stencil over the top, I masked the area around 'ART' and used some Black Soot Distress Ink Pads to colour the word. I then used Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Stormy Sky Inks to blend through the stencil. 

I then used Archival Black ink to stamp some circle designs and an imagination saying, Then used Embossing Paste and a Memory Box Texture Drip Rings and Simon Says Stamp Bokeh Lights Stencils to add texture. I then splattered with Dylusions Black and Lime Green and Tumbled Glass Spray Inks. 

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
