Stenciled background

The next challenge is to use a stencil with inks. I blended 3 colors together but the top two don't look that different.  I added some sticker balloons that I placed onto cardstock so I could give them some lift, my clouds kind of blended in the background so I inked around them and added some wink of stella.

I used the same ink as in the bottom portion of my stencil for the sentiment tag.

Crafters workshop - stencil
Distress Oxides - Peeled paint, Wild Honey and Scattered straw
Balloon Stickers
Bobunny - Sentiments
Spellbinders - Labels Trio die
Fiskars - Cloud punch, w/ wink of stella clear sparkle pen

I am really big on reaching for my patterned paper so it is good I do these challenges that force me to make my own backgrounds.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by once again,

Oh yes, I like this! The stenciling in two colors is really pretty, and putting the stickers up on cardstock really elevates the whole design. Hope you have a great weekend!

Very pretty. I can definitely see the colour difference. Im usually making my own backgrounds so my DP gets neglected.

Great job Connie! Don't you love making backgrounds with these oxide inks? I sure do! Fabulous 3D appearance too ... well done!

Donna Ellis said...

Connie! What a perfect background for these fun hot air balloons! Your stencil is gorgeous, but more, I like the way it starts with green for the ground and yellow as it rises into the sky "closer to the sun"! BEAUTIFULLY DONE! hugs, de

Oh, gosh, this is cute! Very colorful and fun. Love the stenciled background. I bought several stencils before we went on our trip and I finally had a chance to use a couple of them. Getting back to stamping -- yay!
