Stencil Backgrounds

A few Saturdays ago, we had a demo at The Stamp Shoppe that was using the new stencils by Tim Holtz and Memory Box.  We used the Distress Paints, Distress Stains, Tattered Angels Glimmer Sprays, and Distress Ink Pads to create these fun, bright backgrounds.  Last Monday, I made several cards using these pre-made backgrounds.  On this card, I used the Prickley Pear Black Eye Susans and the Mini Butterflies Clear Stamp Set.  The flowers I colored with Copic Markers, but the butterfly I used the Distress Ink to add color.  Then I used the ScorBuddy and made score lines onto the corners of the decorative background paper.  Once the score lines were made, I used the fine line sandpaper to whiten the lines.  The flowers are popped up in front of the die cut doily from Cheery Lynn Designs and Gems from Couture Creations were added to the sentiment.

And one more announcement...

Be sure to join us next week to see the new Spring release from Prickley Pear.  The Design Team members will be doing a hop to show you some beautiful cards using these wonderful new stamps.  For now, check out the PPRS blog for inspiration today!
