{Stencil Sunday} Chris Plays with Faces Some More!


Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! We've got another Stencil Sunday installment for you. On the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of the month, the STAMPgirls share their projects that show off how to creatively use ARTplorations stencils. If you missed last week's post, it's here.

Today STAMPgirl Chris is back to share two more projects. She played some more with one of the Faces stencils and oh boy, be prepared to be blown away! We'll pick one winner of a $15 gift code -- the winner will be drawn from all comments left on the Stencil Sunday posts this month, as well as from the designers' blogs.

  

Here's Chris with her projects:

Hello and happy Sunday crafty friends! I'm thrilled to be back for my second installment for Stencil Sunday!

I'm still having so much fun playing with the faces stencils. This time I've used the Faces: Gorgeous, Dots and Dashes, and Swirly Blooms stencils to create a card and a mixed media canvas panel!

First is my card:

After stenciling Faces: Gorgeous onto the main panel, I covered it with the Swirly Blooms stencil and applied a few Distress Inks around half of the panel, then did the same using the Dots and Dashes stencil on the other side. Adhering the Fearless word die finishes my card.





Next is the canvas panel:

At this stage in the process, I had die cut an oval from scrap paper, and used the negative as a stencil to sponge beige paint inside it. After it dried I placed the Faces: Gorgeous stencil over it and added black Gesso through it.



For more details on how I created both projects, please visit my blog!
