{Spotlight Project} Vicki's Stencil and Spray Card

Hi, everyone! It's Vicki! Today I am creating a card using a stencil and spray ink.

I started by taping down the card panel and stencil (ARTplorations Shutters).

I used a medium blue for my first sponged layer, and then a darker blue for added depth.

I removed the stencil, sprayed with some ink spray, stamped 3 solid circles (Retro Mod Shapes) and added a double layered butterfly (Trendy Butterflies)

I cut out celebrate (Sentiment Builders: Celebrate) on my Silhouette, stamped it, and adhered onto the card panel.

A fun, trendy, bright card. I hope you enjoyed!

Supplies Vicki used in today's project:
