Mixed Media Post Card Swap

I love a good stencil, so I've been adding a few Stencil Girl ones to my collection with their monthly kits.  (disclaimer: I'm just a happy customer, they didn't pay me to write this blog post.) I used the 9" x 12" peacock stencil from the January 2014 kit for these postcards I made for a postcard swap.

Here's a close-up of it...

For the swap we needed to have a 6 word sentence that's a life memoir on it, so this was mine.

I used Golden's fluid acrylic in Iridescent Silver Fine with the stencil...the paint is pretty light unless you get it in the right light and then it shines.  I love it!  The background was done with my gelli plate and some DecoArts paints in Pink Bubblegum, Cinnamon Drop, Razzle Berry.  I also finished the pieces off with my Faber Castell Big Brush Pens...I even used the black one for stamping since my regular black stamp pad is too dried out.

Ok, no more pink & hearts for a bit LOL!  I got a little crazy about that this Valentine's season.  ;)
