CCMC #343!

Do you love to create with a little bit of help from a sketch challenge? We have a super sketch for you to use this week at Create with Connie & Mary:

This is my card:

Can you guess what I used for my white background layer? Is it sponged, is it designer paper, is it stamped....no!

I used the Artisan Embellishment Kit. The kit contains 2 die-cuts and I wanted to preserve one of the die-cuts so that I can re-use it over and over. I turned it into a stencil! I dug out a spray bottle of "sealer" and sprayed two coats on both sides of the die-cut. Why? Because...take this card for example, I used the die-cut to spritz some color on my background. I mixed Soft Sky Ink Refill with rubbing alcohol in a Spritzer bottle and once my color with spritzed, I removed the stencil and wiped it off! Clever huh?

The Artisan Embellishment Kit also includes the pearls, Rose Red Lace and Blackberry Bliss Thin Velvet that you see on my card! Make sure you visit my teammates this week at Create with Connie & Mary

  • Stamps: Best Day Ever (Sale-A-Bration)
