Die cut stencil ...

The good thing about wet and windy weather is that I have all the excuse I need to stay inside and craft!!  This is the second weekend that the UK has been battered by stormy weather ... it is starting to brighten up so hopefully the storm has passed!

Today's project is inspired by the challenge at CAS Mix Up where they want you to use a stencil made from a die.

I created a stencil using one of the Tim Holtz Wildflower dies.  I used my small gel plate to create the panel layering a number of stencilled layers using a selection of purple acrylic paints ... I let each layer dry on the plate before lifting the final print with buff titanium.  I love the texture you can achieve when using this technique.

I used:
Sizzix Tim Holtz Widflowers
Gelli Arts Gel Press Plate
PaperArtsy paints - Amethyst, Bougainvillea
Ranger Dina Wakely Acrylic Paint - Eggplant
Daler Rowney - Buff Titanium
Visible Image - Go to Words

I'm entering the following challenges:
