Blog Hop Time with Stencil Girl, Seth Apter & Emerald Creek - #28 of 40



*****
Wishing you 
Long Life, Good Health and Double Happiness!



With this blog hop there were so many choices from the Stencil Girl Website, I had a tough time selecting my project idea.
But then it hit me when I saw this Stencil


I squeezed in a stamp from Seth's Paper Artsy line and of course I went straight for the EP and used Chinese New Year for the Background over the Super Stock from Creative Scrapbooker.


I grabbed the ATC Mixup #2 Mary Beth Shaw's Collection. I had an idea to use the humming bird. I tried pasting the Humming Bird outline but chose to cut it out and make a silhouette on the gold cardstock and emboss it in the Onyx Frost EP.





I embossed the Blossoms on the Red background with Seth's Baked Texture - Patina Oxide.


then I pasted them on the acetate, by blending the Tangerine and Prawn paints into the paste, and using my palette knife blended them into the stencil. 


I used the Filigree Flourish from Eclectica #6 and inked the stamp with the ranger Emboss it Dabber and then embossed the Ancient amber over the red.




to emphasise the image I stamped over it with StazOn.


I embossed the edge of one of the mat layers with the Patina Oxide,
then layered up with Tim Holtz Gold Metallic Cardstock and a piece of generic black cardstock.


The last thing was to make the resin flower using the Vanilla Aroma EP. I used my favourite Prima Silicone mold, and heated up the powder in a metal measuring cup and poured it into the mold. In less then 5 minutes it was cool and ready to embellish






I ended up painting it to highlight the details for the photo but it looked awesome translucent too.


Fun Pic. I was camping and pulled up an app to get my thoughts organised. This quick finger sketch on my phone was how I organised my project.

    1. Yes you do! It also makes the investment of EP worth while. If you are like me a jar last forever. So this feeds the habit of buying lots of colours LOL
