Layered Stenciling featuring Tiny Bubbles Stencil from Altenew - AECP Level 1

Welcome :)

Today I am playing with the fun Tiny Bubbles stencil from Altenew to create a project inspired by the Celebration: Stencil Techniques class over at the Altenew Academy.

To create the background I took a rainbow of Altenew Crisp Dye Inks and used sponge daubers to color in my 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white panel.  I then cleaned off the stencil and got a clean sponge dauber and my VersaMark ink.  I matched my stencil up with the image I had created and then one color at a time layered VersaMark ink over the sentciled bubbles, then removed the stencil, added embossing powder and heat set, until all of the bubbles were colorful and shiny.

I then trimmed my panel down to 4" x 5 1/4" and centered the oval frame of Altenew's Create A Wreath die set on the panel. I ran this through my Crafter's Companion Gemini Jr. and set aside all 3 pieces it created.  I used the same die to cut out frames in pink, orange, yellow, green and purple and glued them together so I could pop up my bubble frame on top of them to create dimension.

After centering and adhering the rectangle and popped up frame on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base I went about creating my sentiment.  I used the "Sending You Crafty Hugs" stamp from the Altenew Crafty Life stamp set, stamping it with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then embossing it with Altenew Crisp Clear Embossing Powder.  I cut it out using the oval frame but this time just kept the stamped and embossed center.  I put Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive behind the sentiment and around the very edges of the oval and then attached it to the remaining stenciled oval and then adhered this to the center of my card.

I love how this turned out.  I can't wait to try it for a birthday card.  I think I may be addicted to embossing my stenciling now :)
I hope you have fun trying this technique on your own.  If you make a project inspired by this post please tag it with #perkypennypapers on Instagram and I will be able to see it :)  

Until next time,
Happy Stamping :)
