New challenge: stencils and stamps

I have another project for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge: stencils and stamps.

I created the background with crackle paste and a Tim Holtz stencil (rays - my most used stencil!!!).

I stamped a few nature-themed stamps by Stamper's Anonymous and Tim Holtz.

I used Distress Stickles and Rock Candy stickles on some of the stamped images.  The sentiment is from an old set (Tim Holtz), it's the clear smaller version instead of the rubber version (bigger sentiment).

Stencils and stamps

It's time for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp. STENCILS AND STAMPS!!! I love it!!!

I have a tag I made with a Tim Holtz's stencil (rays) and  Darkroom Door stamps (London-themed). I also altered  a piece of white ribbon with Distress Inks and I stamped on it with Archival Inks.

Rock the techniques

Rock the techniques! This is the new challenge at Simon Says Stamps and I LOVE playing with stamping techniques.

I created this card by using the Bohek techniques explained by Dawn from Wplus9 (video).

For the background I used watercolours, pigment ink, Designs by Ryn stamps.

The butterfly stamp is from Hero Arts, I coloured it with Distress Inks and I covered it with Glossy Accents.

The spiral stamps have been embossed with Ranger Gold embossing powder to create extra texture.
The dots for the bohek techniques have been created with Paperartsy stencils.

Create your own background

I made my own background with Lindy's stamp gang magicals (pigment powder+mica), Design by Ryn stamps and Paperartsy stencils.

I used the bohek technique explained in this video by Wplus9.

I used silver embossing powder to give some texture to the spirals.

The new challenge at Simon Say Stamp is "make your own background".

Big butterfly

I made a card with some bold stamps. For the background I Distress Inks, then I sprayed some pearlized water made with Perfect Pearls. I stamped a large Penny Black background stamp with Archival Ink.
Then, I stamped the sundial stamp from Penny Black on book paper coloured with Luminarte Primary elements. 
The big butterfly is from Sheena Douglass /Crafter's Companion, it consists on two stamps, the second butterfly was stamped with versamark and embossed with embossing powder on top of the first butterfly (coloured with Luminarte Primary elements).

I am going to post this on the new Simon Says Stamp challenge:

Boldly go into STAMPtember!
