Long Bamboo and Southwest Background

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is highlighting some of my favorite things...stencils! 

Supplies:
Stampendous:
DWLL533: Long Bamboo Metal Stencil
DWLJ807: Southwest Border
TRANSLUCENT: Clear Embossing Powder
EJK07: Bronze Encrusted Jewels Kit (using the Golden Sand Embossing Powder)

Directions:
1. Tape the Bamboo stencil to Mixed Media Paper.

2. Using the sponge daubers, ink the bamboo using VersaMagic in Tea Leaves and Key Lime, then ad some depth with Cottage Ivy Memento Ink.

3. Remove the stencil, and emboss the image with Clear Embossing Powder.

4. Trim the image and ink the edges with Key Lime.

5. Tape the Southwest Border stencil to Mixed Media Paper.

6. Using the stencil brush, ink the stencil using the 3 darkest shades of ink in the Cappuccino Delight Kaleidacolor ink set. Apply the color randomly to achieve varying tones throughout the stencil.

7. Trim the Southwest Border image.

8. Cut a piece of Grasshopper cardstock to 5" x 4."

9. Apply strips of Tear It! Tape to the Grasshopper cardstock. I started the pieces close together and widened the gap as I moved left.

10. Sprinkle Golden Sand embossing powder on top of the tape and heat.

11. Create the card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock, cut to 6 1/2" x 10."

12. Ink the card base with the darkest shade in the Kaleidacolor set.

13. Glue all of the layers down with Zip Dry.

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask?

So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
