I chose this challenge for last because I was worried it was going to be the most challenging and I think it was the easiest except for the preparation and clean up. I did them in my kitchen and had a sink filled with soapy water so as soon as I was done with a stencil I just put it straight into the soapy water and cleaned it.
You can see the challenge how to's in THIS VIDEO.
You are to use waterbased reinkers, well I only have one color of waterbased reinker so I was trying to think what I could use, some of the girls suggested watercolor paint. Then I remember that my sparkle pens are waterbased and when you squeeze the barrel it give you drops of the ink. I don't know if this is good for the pens or not but I wanted to give the challenge a try, and it worked!!!
Here are all the backgrounds I did using the stencils.
Here is my first card using the stencil that looks like a quilt block.
The stencil is a square, I applied it to a rectangle piece of paper but I liked just the look of the actual star so I cut it done to a smaller square, I had some extra left over that I cut the sentiment out with,
Spectrum sparkle pens for my ink colors - harvest moon, Olive Jade and Smoked Quartz
TCW - stencil
PPD - mini stitched square and stitched banner dies
Spellbinders - classic square dies
Cardmaking and papercraft magazine - sentiment stamp
Recollections - glitter gem
For my second I went with the sun stencil.
I liked the marble effect it gave to this one especially.
Joggles - Sunshine stencil
Spectrum sparkle pens- Biscuit and Red berry
Spectrum Aquatint - Moonlight
Lawn Fawn - Fancy Scalloped rectangles
SRM - Thinking of you stickers
Craftaroo - clear gems
I hope the challenges this week helped spark your creativity and you can have some play time and try one of them yourself :)
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
