In my opinion, anytime that you want to take a project to the next level, anything May Arts is the line to go with! Both Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils have been "Partners in Craft" with May Arts for the past few years, and the reason is simple...WE LOVE MAY ARTS! We're hopping all of this week, and we've got some super prize packages up for grabs...take a look!
See Stampendous Official Contest Rules for details.
My post today features another one of the new Stencil Duo sets designed by Fran Seiford. This one is "Balloon Duo", and as with the other sets, includes one "open" stencil (balloon), and one pattern stencil. Both can be layered and used together, or separately. The sets include a doodling pen, and a small set of notecards.
Beginning with my Creative Palette Rectangle, I placed several drops of Radiant Neon Reinkers in Electric Blue and Electric Green from Tsukineko®, and sprayed with water to mingle the colors. A square panel of the Stampendous Mixed Media White Cardstock was placed on the surface to transfer the swirled ink.
When dry, the same panel was used with the pattern stencil over the surface, and the same ink colors (in inkpad form) were ink-stenciled randomly over the surface, rotating the stencil.
The Balloon stencil was placed over the panel, and I lightly rouged the blue ink around the inside edge of the design, before pasting the balloon design with Translucent Embossing Paste. While wet, the paste was sprinkled with Stampendous Micro Crystal Glitter, and set aside to dry.
Corners were rounded on the panel, before layering it onto a white Fitted Frame Set A, matted with a teal frame. The pretty May Arts Sheer Satin Band ribbon in Seafoam was added to the balloon. The panel was adhered to short flap card created from My Colors Cardstock with Spearmint on the outside, and Caribbean Sea adhered on the inside to match the mat on the square.
A strip of May Arts Adhesive Scallop Border in Robin's Egg Blue was adhered along the flap edge, for feminine detail, and the front of the card was stamped with the Cling Birthday Gorgeous sentiment in Teal Zeal Memento ink from Tsukineko®.
