More Layers of Color Sneak Peek

Here is another card using the new Art Stencils by Layers of Color. Some info about these stencils:
  • they are 6 x 6 in size, enough to cover your typical A2 size card
  • they will retail for $5.95
  • they will be available for purchase on June 14th at the LOC Boutique during the release party!
  • there will be a blog hop featuring these stencils on the 14th of June where you will have a chance to win some stencils.
  • for a chance to win ALL 7 stencils, enter the drawing in the LOC blog.
  • you can find more samples to show these stencils' versatility by the LOC DT members in the LOC SNR chat group.
Now my sample for today uses the stencil for dry embossing with the Cuttlebug. I then inked the cardstock, and using the raised part as a guide, I paper pierced for added effect. Isn't that flourish beautiful? The birds are from the Backyard Birds set. I've been wanting a realistic bird stamp set and this one is just perfect.
