It's Stencil Sunday over at STAMPlorations!
Don't you just love a bargain? I found this denim charger for 79 cents!!! Yay!
First off, I added a layer of clear gesso to seal the denim. Next I used some black archival ink through the Leaf Prints ARTplorations stencil. Then I added some acrylic paint through the Christmas Trees stencil...just using the bottom part of the trees.
The Flutterby stencil was used with some Copper Inka Gold and I also just smudged some here and there with my finger. The entire rim of the charger was also rubbed with the same Inka Gold. For a little more depth, I added some of the Trendy Butterflies in another shade of archival ink.
The final step was to add some wording from the Bold Sentiments: Believe set.
A fun project to make for sure! Here are the links to all the ARTplorations stencils and the STAMPlorations stamp sets I used:
