Wishing you Brighter Days Mini Slimline
Hello everyone! It's Amanda from Twiddler's Nook today with this sweet little mini slimline card and coordinating envelope. I just love these mice and their sidekicks from Say Cheese! so I pulled out the penguins, which I hadn't used yet and decided to color them up!

Mixing It Up - Color Bursts

Mixing It Up - Color Bursts

Welcome back!  This month I'll be playing with some Ken Oliver Color Bursts!  I used them along with the Oopsy Daisy stencil to create two backgrounds!

I started by cutting a panel of watercolor paper.  Then I sprayed the stencil with some Pixie Spray to be sure the stencil would keep good contact with the paper.  Then I also used masking tape to hold them both in place.  Then I sprinkled some Color Burst powders over the top.

You'll get the best result using a fine mister because the water will seep under the stencil even with the adhesive.  I spray just a light amount of water over the top... and the magic starts to happen.

Then I used a paintbrush to move the colors around.  I added a little water here and there.  You can be really careful to fill in all of the spaces, but I prefer a more distressed look.  I also didn't blend too much so as not to mix all of the colors together.  If I get a little too much water, I'll dab it a bit so too much water doesn't seep under the stencil.

So pretty right???  

Even better... I sprinkled a little extra powder onto the stencil and sprayed it a bit and flipped it over onto another panel and another cool look!

Using a circle as a matte and created a scene with some images from Springtime Bunnies and Lovely Unicorns that I stamped, fussy cut and colored with Copics.  I love how it's so easy to mix and match images from the shop!

A sentiment and a few sequins and done.  I'll be sharing another card tomorrow using the second panel I created in this session.

Thanks for stopping!  I hope you enjoyed it and you'll come again soon!

Stencils with Distress Oxide Sprays
I'm a tidy crafter in all ways - I take something out, I put it right back, everything has a place ... and I don't like ink on my fingers! Haha! But today I got good and inky with some Miss Ink Stamps stencils and Distress Oxide Sprays
