Creating A Gift From The Heart And A New Mixed Media Challenge Over At STAMPlorations

Hello and happy first Sunday of the month everyone!  Today begins a new mixed media challenge over at STAMPlorations and today is when I share with you my passion for mixed media with yet another project using my stencils.  
This day is fast becoming one of my favorite events of the month and I would LOVE if you wanted to share any of your own projects that my posts may have inspired.  Here is my project this month:
I am sharing this beautiful 5x7 mixed media canvas I created using stamps and stencils, paints and pastes and inks.
Beginning with a base of inky paper towels, I stamped the images onto dictionary paper and cut and pasted them to the painted canvas background.
Next, using both Peerless watercolors and Golden fluid acrylics (watercolors first - acrylics last) and waterproof ink pens, I accented, highlighted and outlined everything.
I masked my images before adding the paint and pastes to the background through stencils, and then after everything had dried, I added the sentiment using my favorite stamped tissue paper technique.  (Go HERE to see more about that technique.) 

A few final accent touches using Pebeo Cerne Relief in black, gold and copper and I am done!! 
So that's it for my challenge post this month.  I hope I inspired you to go play with your stencils, and if I did and you create something using your stencils, do consider linking up to this month's Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations, where it is always anything goes, except a card, as long as you use a stencil, ANY stencil.

Cheers and Happy Creating
