Hi...still cold! lol
We are expecting 6-12 more inches of snow overnight tonight. We ventured out to the grocery store today and that was plenty. Ryan is outside cutting up some more wood for the stove. I've been enjoying some time in my craft room.
This week's PTI Make it Monday is all about stenciling and creating your own stencils using cover plate dies. I thought I might use glossy accents again since I loved the look when I discovered how well it worked last year.
However, I thought my stickles might work just as well.
I created my stencil with the hexagon cover plate die. I squirted some Picket Fence Distress Stickles onto my craft mat. With a little spatula I scraped up some of the stickles and spread it out evenly over the stencil. I removed the stencil and set the piece aside to dry. I love the effect!
I decided to embellish the corner with layers and layers of butterflies. The bottom two are die cut from Kraft and Vellum and then embossed with the same cover plate. On top of that are two wood veneer butterflies and finally topped with a butterfly button!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
