Here is my project for this week's Stencil Sunday
ARTplorations- Honeycomb delight stencil
STAMPlorations- Trendy Birds 2
I started with a brown piece of cardstock that had a script
I cut it out and scored it with a stylus.
I took the ARTplorations Honeycomb Delight stencil. I traced some guidelines. With a mouse pad underneath to give it cushion I embossed the roof panels using the stencil and a stylus.
I took gold metallic rub and I rubbed over the embossed areas.
This photo shows how the metallic rub really made the embossing stand out.
I added some distressed ink over the metallic rub to add extra texture.
I die cut a circle for the door to the birdhouse.
I glued the house together. I put a bamboo skewer through the bottom of the house I added some floral filler and quilled roses around the house.
I stamped STAMPlorations Trendy Birds 2 with black stazon ink onto red cardstock. I fussy cut out the birds and glued them to the outside of the birdhouse.
I had a blast making this project. I hope you enjoyed it. I made this collage photo to show you different sides and angles of the birdhouse.
