December is here!!! I hope the joy of the holly jolly Holidays start filling your hearts and homes.
STAMPlorations has new challenges at their blog starts on every 1st of the month. One of the challenges is the Stencil Challenge. You are invited to create and link up your Anything Goes project as long as you use any stencils on your project. Head over to their blog to see more inspirations from the team today.
I made a mixed media, CAS Christmas card for this challenge. On my card I used the Make Marks 5 ARTplorations Stencil, Christmas Reindeer ARTplorations Stencil, and Yuletide Deer Stamp Set.
I use my gelli plate and acrylic paints (white and read) to create that patterened background. After the acrylic paint dried, I added the raindeer stencil on top of the panel, secured it tapes and I added the gold metallic glitter texture paste on it. I removed it right away and run the stencil under a warm water to clean it.
After the texture paste dried, I trimmed it slightly smaller than the A2 card and I added that background mat on a red card with E-Z Runner Gran.
I stamped the sentiment phrase on a white cardstock with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair ink pad and Mini MISTI. I stamped it twice to get darker red color. I trimmed the sentiment into a banner and I added on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.
I hope this card give you an idea to create and play along with the December Stencil Challenge. When you create your project using any STAMPlorations stencils, stamps, and/or dies, you can also link it up at the Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge.
