This is my new favourite technique since I taught it at a class last week. The ladies had so much fun learning the techniques & were thrilled with their finished artwork. So I wanted to show them what they can do with the stencilled panels they created, and a bit of matting & layering......

The main panel was coloured using duster brushes, then stencilled and glittered. The panel was matted & layered on contrasting papers and then I added a handmade tea bag folded butterfly in the same paper, with a beaded body. 

And these are some of the samples I made for the class....

You can see the in mounted panel lower left in the pic. 

Looking forward to seeing what others create with their panels!

Thank for stopping by



  1. All gorgeous backgrounds and even lovelier when made into a card. Thanks for sharing.

    Hugs, Sarn xx

  2. What gorgeous backgrounds, Debs! I've thought about trying to teach a stenciling class but I have a couple of ladies that are really heavy handed and wonder how that would work? The finished card is gorgeous with the tea bag fold butterfly. I must look for directions to make that.

  3. This is gorgeous Debs. Love those backgrounds you have done. Aren't stencils much nicer these days?
    Sorry to hear you are having problems healthwise.

  4. Such a lovely card, great oriental theme. Your samples are great too. Maybe that stenciling thing isn't as evil as I thought. Hee hee. Not that I really thought it was evil, but more that it really isn't "me."


I love reading your comments, so fire away!
