Stencil Mania at ATP Exchange

'Stencil Mania',
 is the new challenge starting today over at the Artists Trading Post Exchange
Please pop over for all the details, there is also a £10 voucher  for the winner of each challenge donated by our sponsor Artist Trading Post.

To begin, this is the first addition of masking to my base,  a home made stencil--the left over outer shape, from cutting out a Tattered Floral die cut flower , using Grunge Paste.  The remains of the paste I spread roughly across two sides using an old knife and a well used old stencil

On the left  it shows the next stencil layers  to my base,  the mask I used here is another  old one which I sprayed over using Pomegranate Seed Dylusions spray ink.
When dry I  lightly rubbed over the pattern area  with Spiced Marigold Distress ink, to fill in any white spaces.
These are the next two layer panels. The top one was  a scrap of dry embossed card sprayed the same colour as the base.
For the next strip, I used a Tim Holtz stencil and some Translucent embossing paste.
When dry I rubbed over the raised area with White Fire Treasure gold.
I also used this around the edges of the other layers. 
The main stamped image is a Dylusions stamp.
The metal flowers --- Prima Marketing
Metal word plate --- Tim Holtz

Many products  I used are  available from Artist Trading, I have added the links.

Thank you for stopping by to take  a look, the comments you leave me are always appreciated.
We do hope you will join us this time at ATP Exchange
