Stencil Sunday #29

Good evening all.

All being well I'll be enjoying myself in Queenstown when this goes live! We're here until Friday whence we start our 2,500 mile roadtrip back to Auckland...of course we'll be taking the scenic route!
Update...we're having a fabulous time, weather has been mixed but it was glorious today.

My turn to provide some Stencil Sunday inspiration over at STAMPlorations today. I've got a 5" x 7" canvas to inspire you with.

I started with a layered gelli plate piece made using the Foiled Again and Leaf Bliss stencils and acrylic paint which I stamped with various stamps from the Mixed Media Elements set. I painted the canvas using the darkest colour then attached the gelli piece.

I used texture paste through part of the Flutters and Splatters stencil and once dry I over stamped the butterflies with the matching stamps from the Trendy Butterflies set with versamark and heat embossed with various EPs. Sentiments are from the same stamp set. Gilding wax was used around the edges to finish.

I love how this turned out.....

And the January Mixed Media Challenge runs until the end of the month! If you want to play, you still have a few days left to get messy and share your non-card mixed media projects. It's anything mixed media goes except a card...and you must use a stencil (any brand or even a homemade one!) in your project(s). For the complete challenge info + prizes, click here.
