Stencil ATC's

I signed up for a stencil ATC swap in November on Rubberstampchat. The swap was to send in 8 and receive 8 ATC's back- and the hostess was Deb Lovett.
  I was very happy to get out some Pan Pastels-from the Donna Downey Mixed Media l collection and stencils I had not used at all from Crafters Workshop (from Creative Cuts and Crafts in Elmhurst, Ill) . The stamps are from Artistic Outpost .I stamped the stopwatch image a second time and added a 2nd layer of it for a little dimension. For my first attempt at Pan Pastels and stencils, I am pleased with the outcome : )   The pan Pastel pigments do have to be sealed- so they are misted over with a fixative (between each layer).

Linking this to a few Challenges:
Artistic Outpost referral program HERE - theme Anything Goes with A.O images
Frosted Designs- Bucket List- using the Pan Pastel kit and stencils I bought last July.......I have been watching tons of how to tutorials and links from Pintrest, so finally got the courage to Just do it!  Yeah!
Addicted to Stamps- Nature
Frilly and Funky- follow your Muse....my first ATC with Pan Pastels and stencils : )
Fun with ATC's- something new- the Pan pastels and stencils are new/unused as well as the technique of the ATC
Fashionable Stamping- Surprise Us

Now for the fun- Here are the ATC's I received (in no particular order):
Pigment ink applied and embossed thru stencil on Vellum. By Marianclare

 Stencil on Glossy CS. By Deb Lovett

 SU Embossing Folder and Dylusions spray. By Cindy Rescorl

 The image was traced thru the stencil then Zentangled. By Julie Bowman

 The panel woth Embossing Paste is hard to see, so I took a close-up. By Diane Marr.

  Fun stencil w/embossing Paste and covered with Acetate. By Hobbyaholic

 Embossing paste thru a stencil. By Pat Hanbery

 Distress Ink applied, then water misted thru stencil. Next (Blue) Distress Ink added thru the stencil and finally Gold Metallic Paste thru a stencil.   By j3annin3

I enjoy the inspiration from these swaps and the challenges to inspire my MoJo!

Thanks for stopping by!
