VIVA Las Vegas Stamps and StencilGirl Hop


VIVA Las VegaStamps! sent us each a sheet of their rubber stamps.
I received the December Daily, titled Plate 1430 which is perfect for what I do in my own Daily!

Numbers... Words... A Little Alphabet!!! 
It makes my Heart Sing!!!!

I started by liberally stamping this rubber stamp in its entirety onto tissue paper
using the Stazon Ink Pad in several colors...
Azure, Timber Brown, Black Cherry, and Midnight Blue.
A little variety always adds interest.
And THEN I separated the little alphabets and some of the words to get started 
with a spread in my StencilGirl Journal from here......

I just wanted the cute little alphabet for this one. 
The other parts of the tissue paper are being saved for my DLP for December!




My background consists of some year old gelli plate experiments....
plus the liberally stenciled page of my StencilGirl Book,
Washi Tape, PanPastels, Posca Pens, Distress Inks, paints and markers.


Smack dab in the middle of the left side page is the August StencilClub Swirly Doodle.
One of my favorites....
On top of that is the Bullet Holes Stencil by Terri Stegmiller.
I used this stencil 2 different ways......

I used my VersaMark Stamp Pad and Copper PanPastels randomly...
For a little metallic shine.
Then I thought the opposite page needed a little focal point...
And the little yellow Bullet Holes were made to look like little sunshine flowers
with Posca Pens, markers and paints.

Ahhh...Warm Memories....I used to sing this with my kids....

Check back with the StencilGirl Talk  
and Viva Las VegaStamps! all week long
 to see what each of the design teams are doing.
Leave comments on all the blog posts for more chances to win the giveaway.



Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Arting!
