Fun With Stencils and Stamps!

This is a SNEAK PEEK at one of the new stencils being Revealed at CHA!  This will be the prize for playing along with our SUMMER FUN CHALLENGE!

Supplies Used!

 1. Start with the stamp and brayer the Encore Ink on the Stamp.  This stamp is from USArtQuest!
 2. Press on paper and repeat until you get the desired look.  Over lap the images!
 3. Coat still wet ink with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel and heat.  I do part from the back and part from the front to get great texture!
Cut to size!

4. Using White Matte Embossing paste on the cut piece stencil the Sea Star.
 5. Use the same paste to emboss the Scallop Shell. Set aside to dry.

 6. Add some color to the yellow suede paper, also from USArtQuest.  Encore ink is from Tsukineko!
 7.  Stamp on a piece of dark teal paper with he stamp and then use the Happy Birthday stencil with White Paste!

 8. Place stencils over the now dry images and stencil on color.
 9. Do the same for the Spiral Shell and cut it out and attach to card front with 3D foam dot.  Do the same with the now dry Happy Birthday.
This is your finished SUMMER FUN card.  You can use this for men or women so that makes it all the more fun!

Thanks for joining me today!  Check out the rest of the teams posts for the day and come see Dreamweaver Stencils at CHA in Chicago!  Our booth number is 1635!  See you there!
