Glitter Stenciled Background

I have an easy glittery stenciled design with no dry time! I used the new Blitzened Stamp Set along with my favorite stencil from Miss Ink Stamps - Circular Harlequin

I love the look of glittered stencils, but sometimes I just don't want to wait! Haha! Glitter Dust Spray is an awesome option when I want a hint of sparkle with no dry time. And I'm just loving this slightly nontraditional Holiday color scheme! 


Thanks so much for joining me today!

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Welcome, I hope that you are as excited about the new release as I am. So many fun sets that absolutely make me smile that are more for adult recipients. Today I'm sharing the new stamp set called Blitzened that I have paired with a stencil called Art Deco.

First I die cut an A2 panel with a stitched rectangle die I had in my stash and taped off the outer border. I then ink blended with distress oxide ink in tattered rose over the Art Deco stencil and immediately added sparkle paste (Couture Creations) over the inked areas. I set the panel aside to dry overnight and immediately washed the stencil. In the photo below, you can see the amount of texture and shine that it provides to the card!

In the meantime I die cut all the images & sentiments from the Blitzened stamp set and did some simple copic coloring (R59 & R46 for the candy cane & berries, G28 & G24 for the leaves, B000 and B0000 for the glass, W3 and W0 for the mouse). I love that the image has so much on it and tells a story that you really don't need anything else to complete the card!

The Art Deco stencil design creates so much interest, but not in an overwhelming way, so that you eyes move all over the card, but the focal point still clearly remains on the mouse.

Thank you for stopping by!
