Broom Flight: Day 3 of 31 Days

Greetings, my Spooktacular friends! It's Day 3 of the 31 Days of Halloween. This is one of my favorite cards that I've made for the month. I've been trying to work ahead quite a bit with my posts, and I couldn't wait to share it, so here it is on Day 3. This is SO easy to do, and you can learn how with my instructions below. I used Distress Oxides to make the background, along with Sheer Shimmer Spritz, which creates a fantastic effect.
FMS4076: Broom Flight
GX269U: Moss Green Ultra Fine Glitter

My Colors Cardstock: Plum
Imagine: On Point Glue
Ranger: Distress Oxide Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet & Vintage Photo, Mini Ink Blending Tools
Canson: Bristol Paper
Water Spritzer

1. On a piece of Bristol Paper, using the Mini Ink Blending Tools, apply the 3 Distress Oxide Inks listed in a random, circular fashion. Blend the colors.

2. Spritz the stencil with water.

3. Flip the wet side of the stencil carefully down into the Oxide Inked paper. Use a clean, dry paper towel to press the stencil into the paper and to blot up any excess water.

4. Lift stencil carefully and use a heat gun to speed up drying time.

5. Spritz the stencil again and reapply to the paper if necessary. Be sure to line up the stencil.

6. Crop the dried image down to 3 3/4" x 4 3/4."

7. Use the Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply Vintage Photo Oxide Ink to the edges of the paper.

8. Create the card base out of Plum cardstock, cut to 5 1/2" x 8."

9. Adhere stenciled image to the card base.

10. Using On Point Glue, run a line of glue down either side of the card.

11. Sprinkle Moss Green Ultra Fine Glitter on to the glue and gently tap off the excess.

You can create this same effect with any stencil, though I recommend doing it with one that has more of a solid surface to it. It would be gorgeous for Christmas cards. I hope you'll give it a try!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
