Stampendous and Clear Scraps Collaboration: Parrot Party

The Stampendous team has been doing a fun collaboration with Clear Scraps all week long. Since today it Dreamweaver Thursdays, I was sure to infuse a bit of stenciling and die-cut goodness into my project.

I made a scrapbook page featuring not only a fun piece of acrylic from Clear Scraps, but a stencil and die-cut from Dreamweaver as well as a stunning Parrot and a companion leaf. For the acrylic piece, I took the Quatrefoil stencil and applied alcohol inks to it. Here's a closer look.

I love how the various colors of alcohol inks blend together. I used a purple, a cornflower blue, a yellow and a green. I also wrote my title with a Sharpie on the acrylic sheet.

I colored the parrot and large leaves with my Tombow watercolor markers. You can see in the above photo the Leafy Branch die cut that I used with a metallic cardstock.

I used some washi tape to help secure the Clear Scraps piece to my layout. There's also a hidden staple to further keep it attached. How would you like to see more? Please be sure to visit the the links below to see all of the posts for this wonderful collaboration. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
