Just Hello for Just Us Girls

 Hello and Welcome to Saturday.
It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls
and our Host is Carol asking us to
use more than one stencil. 
I love doing just that. I am sure the Gallery
will be full of amazing stenciling especially 
with the layered stencils coming into vogue.
Me - well I don't have any but have a gazillion 
of the other ones as you can see below.

I thought I was going to have a background
from my gelli plate but my stenciling didn't turn out
as I had hoped so I went with a partly smooched one
 then went mad with lots of different stenciling - 
too many to mention. I used Distress Oxide inks
on all of them. The main focal stencil has
texture paste mixed with iridescent medium
then coloured to match the background.
Finished by adding my sentiments from STAMPlorations,
inking the edges and adhered to white card base.
Pop over and see what our Guest Claire
and my Team mates created and come join us.
You could be our Chic of the Week and
in the running to be our Guest in June.
Thanks for dropping in.
It's always a pleasure to read your kind comments.

Things with Wings Hop and Linky Party

Over at  STAMPlorations it's time to celebrate Spring!
We are having our 
The STAMPloration Girls have been really busy
getting creative to inspire you
especially as there are Prizes to Be Won!

I decided to go all out here and made a 5/7 inch Canvas.

Admittedly this took me some time to make
but so much fun especially with the amount of colours/textures
 I used on the background. With all that going on
 a bit of the stenciling lost it's way.
I knew when this blog hop came up I wanted to use
one of my lovely chipboard butterflies which are really thick.

I had a hard time trying to get these close ups
 the same true colour like the main photo
but you get the idea!

Here are the STAMPlorations Products I used

Other products - 
Lindy's Spray's, Magical Powders
Distress Grit Paste, Gilding Polish
Art Alchemy Waxes, Sparks and Art Stones
Tiny Beads, Nuvo Embossing Powder,
Cheesecloth, Pearls, Gems and Button.
