It's DAY 1 of the fun ARTplorations stencil blog hop! For the next 3 days, the STAMPlorations girls will be sharing projects showcasing ARTplorations stencils. And a blog hop wouldn't be complete without prizes along the way! Simply leave a comment here, on my team's blogs, and on the STAMPlorations blog by Friday, March 13, for lots of chances to win one of several prizes.
SIX (6) winners (2 winners per day) randomly drawn from all comments left on the designers' blogs will win their choice of ARTplorations stencil. THREE (3) winners (1 winner per day) randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog will each win a $15 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations shop. Plus there'll be surprise prizes along the way :o)
For my card, I did some monoprinting using the Happy Flowers stencil, Gelli plate, and acrylic paints. I was able to pull 4 prints from this one. I went monochromatic and used 3 different shades of blue acrylic paints on my Gelli plate. Rather than describe how each print looks, here's a short video (under 90 seconds):
I picked one of the prints I did after the paint was dry and mounted it to my card base. For the background, I used stamps from Mixed Media Grunge, the April/May 2015 stamp club set that will be available in the shop beginning on the first week of April. (If you're a stamp club member, you'll get to preview the set on March 15 and you'll receive this when your subscription renews in April or May.) The sentiment is from the Hashtag Authentic set.
Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here. Stop by again tomorrow for DAY 2 of the ARTplorations stencil blog hop!
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
