In today's post, guest designer Olivia Rivera-Marmara, shares projects she created with stencils, gilding flakes, and distress oxide sprays.

    

Hello, everyone. It is my final guest DT post for Stencil Sundays. I have had a wonderful time and thank you all your kind comments. For the mixed media style cards I am sharing today, I worked with Distress Sprays and Gilding Flakes. The initial backgrounds were created using my Distress Oxide Inks on my Gel Plate.

In the first card I used the Burst. I used a pink and blue color Oxide Spray over the background. After that, I splatter with some white paint and then use die cuts for the center.  To see how the process came together, my latest video is here https://youtu.be/zVLPHqj86wI

Next up, I decided to finally put some of that messy beautiful gilding flakes I have to use. The next two cards used two different stencils with the gilding flakes. For this technique I used my DecoFoil Transfer Duo that can be used without heat. This first card I inked the stencil, Onion in Raws, first with Distress Ink. I then off centered the stencil so that the gilding flakes design with show as well as the distress inks.



*****

For my final card, I used the stencil, Weaving, to be an accent point. I then stamped the card with the Mixed Media Elements stamp and used one of the sentiments in the Inspirational #1 clear sticker pack.




If you want to see how I created these cards, I also have my video of the process here at https://youtu.be/XCTYf5mnS3Q.

I hope you guys enjoyed my recent projects. It has been a blast to create for you.
