Altenew November 2018 Stencil/Ink Spray Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
 Warning: Super-heavy photo post
s
Welcome to Altnew Stencil/Ink Spray Release Blog Hop!
I am super excited to share 4 stenciled/ink-sprayed projects with you.
If you arrive from the blog of Kathleen Graumüller, you are in the right place!
All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew's Card Blog and Scrapbook Blog.

First up, it is this gorgeous Flowing Butterfly Stencil.
It comes with TWO butterflies....how cool is that.
Altenew-FlowingButterflyStencil&InkBundle-Virginia#1

I couldn't decide which butterfly to use and decided to use BOTH!
The large butterfly was ink-sprayed with the new Cosmic Berry and Puffy Heart.
For the small butterfly, I mixed White Embossing Paste with the ink spray and applied over the stencil.

I used Gold Glitter Washi Tape and sequins to glam it up. 
Altenew-FlowingButterflyStencil&InkBundle-Virginia#3

The sentiment "hello beautiful" is from Inked Rose Stamp Set.

My next card features the very cool Feathered Leaves Stencil .
Altenew-FeatheredLeavesStencil-Virginia#1

First I sprayed the Mountain Mist Spray onto Bristol paper, I then took the stencil and dabbed it on another piece of card stock. And that became the background for this card.

The Potted Plants were  stamped, colored and inked with Watercolor Brush Makers.

The sentiment comes from Zinnia Build-a-Flower.

My 3rd card features the Flowing Heart Stencil.
Altenew-FlowingHeartStencilInkBundle-Virginia#1

I mixed the white embossing paste with the new Puffy Heart.
The Dotted Washi Tape really comes in handy.

The beautiful sentiment comes from Garden Silhouette Stamp Set.

My last card (alas, you made it) features the Sunburst Stencil.
Altenew-SunburstStencil-Virginia#1
I used two ink colors to create a fun background. By rotating the stencil each time, you get to create this fun and colorful background.

Altenew-SunburstStencil-Virginia#2
I used one of my all-time favorite stamp set with Floral Art. The flowers were colored with Watercolor Pan Set. The sentiment also comes from Garden Silhouette Stamp Set.

Hope you enjoying seeing how these awesome stencils are used and applied.

I tend to really be drawn to the stencils that come to a central point in the middle, so I'm a big fan of the floral mandala and sunburst and starburst stencils. I just find them so helpful for drawing the eye to my focal point and making for a quick, interesting background. Thanks for sharing all these great ideas!
