Hi everyone and thanks to all of you who left such lovely comments on my first attempt at stamping with Aquamarkers.
I've another 'give it a go and see what happens' card to show you today and I've CASEd the same card as I did yesterday. This time I've used my new Penny Black 'intertwined' stencil and applied gesso through it onto black card. When the gesso dried I used Aquamarkers with water to colour it before matting onto silver mirricard and then onto the base card. The sentiment is a Clearly Besotted stamp and the butterfly is a Cheery Lynn die with a couple of gems added.
I've applied gesso through stencils before but never as the focal point and I'm not sure whether I like this card..... although maybe that's because of the black background as I don't find it an easy colour to work with.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Happy Little Stampes CASE challenge - and this is the card I CASEd
Country View challenge 'use a stencil'
Cuttlebug Mania challenge 'butterfly'
Love to Create challenge 'anything goes mixed media'
Mod Squad challenge 'April showers bring May flowers'
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'stencil it'
and as I had to delve deep into my snippets box for the black card (told you I don't really do black) and also the little pieces of white card for the butterfly and sentiment, I shall also head over to see the playmates over at Pixie's Snippets Playground where the challenge is to use up your snippets.
