Hey all! Welcome back! It is officially Round 3 of Gallery Idol over at Paper Crafts Magazine. Thank you so much for all of your votes last week! Seriously people, YOU ROCK! Thank you so very much for all your support! I feel so lucky to still be in the running, thanks to you. And I'm having a great time!
This week, I am seriously blow away by the talent of all these ladies, and I know you will be too! Head over to take a look. The other 14 contestants really know how to craft-it-out!
Alright, lets get started. This round is all about Stencils.
Here is my submission:
I used two stencils to layer and blend colour for my card front. I then fussy cut the stencilled area to create my card. Let me show you how it came together.
First I started out with two stencils and my favourite Neon inks by Hero Arts
I layered the circle stencil on the bottom and the fishnet stencil over it and secured it with masking tape. I then started adding some colour.
When I had a layer of colour down how I wanted it, I took the top fish net stencil off and was left with the circle image stencilled into the fish net pattern. I then took more colour and sponged over the circle stencil again to blend in the colours and mute some areas of the fish net pattern. Then keeping the stencil in place I took a light pen and added in my own free hand waves to add some dimension and interest to a few of my bubbles.
Here it is opened. You can see that it has a peg leg! Only that one little bubble sits flush with the back of the card. It's kind of fun, I think!
I added some glossy accents to the YOU sentiment and added a die cut for the AWESOME all nestled in together. I felt like the bright colours of this card was just screaming awesomeness!
My card base is a shimmer blue card stock from Papertrey Ink. It's very fun when the light hits it.
And there you have it, my finished card! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look. And if you feel like it deserves your vote, please head over to Paper Crafts and cast a vote for me! You have until Thursday at noon so be sure to get it in when you can. And thank you again for voting me into this round! I have had such a great time playing with all of my stencils and seeing what the other amazing designers have created. They are each so talented and inspiring. It has been amazing to be apart of!
Have a great week.
