Try It Out with a "T" #81

**Please be sure to scroll down for my first post of the day! Thanks!**


Our challenge today is Stencil It! Use either Dreamweaver stencils or Crafter's Workshop Templates on our projects! So many fun ways to use them~ with embossing pastes, micas, Viva Decor products and etc.!

If in doubt, there are some great videos by design team member, Marti to give you some ideas~~ herehere, here, and  here.


Be sure to visit Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see what the other design team members came up with! I know they'll knock your socks off!!

I started by taking my template, taping one corner to hold it in place (as I knew I'd be cutting it down in size) onto my cardstock and then I sponged on several different colors of ink. 


Next I took my Copic 0.3 Multiliner and outlined all the "white" spaces. (Note-if you do this, cut down your cardstock first so you don't do some of this detailed work for nothing...take my word for it).



After I outlined the entire piece (note, very time consuming but it looks awesome) then I cut it down to the size I wanted for my card. (Would've made more sense to do this first but you know, sometimes we learn as we go!)

I decided on a 5x5 size as I just had to show off how pretty this looks!! Next I attached this piece to some black cardstock, sort of as a base/mat. Next came the really fun part...we all know I love sparkle so I took my Viva Decor Holographic Liner and went to town adding sparkle to parts of this background.


I must admit the next step was the hardest for me...hehe...setting the piece aside and letting it dry. Hehe! Once it had dried, I just couldn't bring myself to cover up any of the flowers so I just added some ribbon and some butterflies with Viva Decor Glitter liner on them as well to make a card.
