Denim Charger

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:
