Spread Your Wings @ STAMPlorations

 Hi everyone! Welcome to STAMPlorations December Stencil ChallengeOur very last Stencil Challenge for 2020.

We are all looking forward to exciting happenings and new STAMPlorations products in 2021.  Spread your wings with us.
I'm so in love with the background Arches slimline stencil once I finished sponging it down with ink pad over the stencil.
Then I fussy cut some butterflies and glue them down neatly with PVA glue.
The sentiment is from Trendy Birds 2 stamp set and for little additional interest, I added a touch of pattern near the edges by stamping down random circles.

I look forward to see your creation/s at Mr. Linky soonest.
Enjoy life and wishing everyone happiness and joy, good health and prosperity now and beyond. Let 2021 light us all up in positive mind and provide us all from any illness free living.

Take care dear friends.

Hugs and smiles,

Be Free @ STAMPlorations

Hello December! Hi everyone! I hope all of you are in the best of health and feeling great. So am I. Today the Stencil Design Team and I at STAMPlorations are welcoming you to our new stencil challenge this entire December. I look forward to see your beautiful creation/s at Mr. Linky before 2020 and coronavirus say adieu, hence the title of my creation ~ Be Free! Let's pray 2021 lights up the world and cherish us all with greatest health and joy.

Sharing my project for this challenge inspiration is a slimline card:

I sponged down two different colors from lime green and sky blue ink pads through Circles and Daisies Slimline Stencil on a white card stock.
Then I stamped down some leaves randomly from Trendy Leaves 2 stamp set with Versafine Ink Pad.
Next step was stamping down a few flowers from Big Bloom Factory stamp set using Versafine Ink Pad as well on a white card stock before I fussy cut the six blooms neatly and glue down over the slimline design.
I used the same lime green and sky blue ink pads to color the six blooms using aqua brush. I do have to say it was so therapeutic because I was a little bit under the weather at the time. 
Lastly I stamped down a sentiment from Trendy Birds 2 stamp set on a white card stock and glue it down at the top left corner.

Basically this card speaks simplicity by stenciling and stamping yet it took quite a while to figure out colors and composition like always {smile}. I love the finished result and will keep this card until I'm ready to part with it.

Don't forget to display this graphic in your blog post too.
That's it for now. I look forward to see your work at your blog.
Till then, au revoir.

Hugs and smiles,
