stencils and paint (Moxie Fab, SSS, Virginias View)

Playing with stencils and paint I was. After doing the mountains of laundry that accumulated here while I was having a good ole time in Michigan!

Wanna have a looksee?

Used my DIY gelli plate (a plastic bag on a pile of newspapers) applied green paint to gelli plate and "printed" onto white cardstock.

When it was dry I applied turquoise and light blue paint through a raindrops stencil from The Crafters Workshop. Um, you may notice I actually used the "second print" of the green page, not the page pictured above.

Then I used black paint with an alpha stencil from Dyan Reavley.

I die cut a bloom and hand cut a stem to use as masks.  Adhered the masks temporarily and applied cream paint to the entire piece. This is how it looked when the masks came off.

Went with yellow paint and bricks (from Dutch Doobadoo) on left side; red paint and blooms (The Crafters Workshop) on right side of piece. Get the picture?

Took masks off. Stamped leaf with black paint. Trimmed panel to size and adhered to card. Made a dymo label sentiment and popped it up on dimensional adhesive and over some wispy threads. Figured after all the "heavy" stuff a little bit of "wispy" was in order ;) So here she is in all her glory...

And let me tell you right now, I was totally inspired by Jessica Sporn. Wanna have some fun and get wild? Check out her blog. And stop by tomorrow to meet this card's somewhat quieter cousin ;)

I thought you may have picked up a Gelli Plate while you were in the US - but, hey, no need! Love all the layers, and the addition of wispy.
