STAMPlorations~ January Challenge!

Happy Sunday crafty friends! It's that time again...
A new challengestarts today at STAMPlorations! :o)

The theme is always anything mixed media goes except a card! Just remember you must use at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. You have until the end of the month to play!   

Here are some ATC's I made using ARTplorations  Stained Glass stencil and STAMPlorations Art MarksBold Sentiments: Create Bold sentiments:Explore stamp sets.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper that I had dipped into water with alcohol inks. I then blended over the Stained Glass Stencil in Mermaid Lagoon, Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks. I stamped randomly with stamps from the ART MARKS set and then sentiments from the CREATE and EXPLORE Bold Sentiments set in Jet Black Archival Ink. I finished with some Washi Tape and Ebony Black NuvoDrops. My finished ATC's were then matted to black cardstock as I love how it grounds and makes the design bolder. 

Here's a closer look at them:

ARTplorations: Stained Glass

There, we are another fun make using the fabulous stamps and stencils from STAMPlorations. :o) I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty and join in our challenge.
