Altenew May 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
Warning: Super-heavy photo post 

Yay, it's a Stencil Release Blog Hop from Altenew!
I am super excited to share 4 stenciled projects with you.


If you arrive from the blog of Svitlana Shayevich, you are in the right place!

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog
First up, it is my favorite stencil of this release:

1. featured stencil: Broken Chevron
The pattern of this stencil is simply beautiful no matter what angle you look at it.
Altenew-BrokenChevonsStencils-Virginia#1

 The Altenew Embossing Paste is just the right arsenal for your stencil project. 
Here I added  the embossing paste with the Broken Chevrons. 
Once the paste was completely dry (the HARDEST part is to wait), I applied the rainbow colors with Watercolor Brush Markers. If you have never tried embossing paste, this method is a must-do!

Altenew-BrokenChevonsStencils-Virginia#2

 For the sentiment, I applied Gold String Washi Tape over a piece a card stock.
Then I die cut it with Fancy Hello Die with Mini Blossom Die Cut Machine. 

Altenew-BrokenChevonsStencils-Virginia#3
I did stack two more dies underneath the Fancy Hello to make the sentiment stand out and not as fragile.  The Fancy Hello Die fits the entire design so nicely!

2. featured stencil: Deco Wonder Stencil
Altenew-DecoWonderStencil-Virginia#1
 I tilted the stencil in angle and applied all colors and shades with Delectable Delights Oval Ink.
What can I say, the colors blends like BUTTER!

Altenew-DecoWonderStencil-Virginia#2

I decided to take a golden approach with this stencil. So, I inked up Hazelnut and the Gold Enchanted Pigment Ink with the Dare To Dream Stamp Set

Altenew-DecoWonderStencil-Virginia#3


3. featured stencil: Illusion Spiral Stencil

Altenew-IllusionSpiralStencil-Virginia#1

I thought it will be cool to use Spray Mist with this stencil and that was exactly what I did. 
I used Antique Gold Metallic Spray for this purpose.
Altenew-IllusionSpiralStencil-Virginia#2
I took out the Galaxy Washi Tape and Die cut it with Halftone Stars Nesting Die.

Altenew-IllusionSpiralStencil-Virginia#3

The Hooray sentiment from  Speech Bubble and Die Bundle  is just right for this celebratory card.
 
4. featured stencil:  Heart Builder Stencil

Altenew-HeartBuilderStencil-Virginia#1
This 2-step Heart Builder stencil is just too fun!
You can use any colors for each step.
I applied Fushia Pink as my first and Chamomile as my 2nd step.

Altenew-HeartBuilderStencil-Virginia#2

When you see the reveal, you will LOVE this stencil so much that you would want to try any colors!
I used Parchment Paper becuase the colors are so striking!
Altenew-HeartBuilderStencil-Virginia#3
I also kept the focal point (from Weekend Doodles) super simple. 
Hope you like my 4 stencil projects. Do you have a favorite?
