"Modern Milly"

Can U Resist

Woohoo, another challenge is up and running at FSC!!!
And it is all about resist this fortnight.

You can use any resist technique that you long as you state what it is, 
and of course use a stamp, then you can join in the fun.

There have been some truly amazing cards being made lately
using I wanted to get some new ones and have a little fun!
After going into both of the scrapbooking shops in town and asking about stencils...
I was greeted with blank looks and the owners weren't really interested in finding out more
about the products...not one question! Hard to believe isn't it!
And one of those shops is closing in a few weeks...ummm

So on-line it had to be ~ and I was thrilled when they arrived this week. 

I have kept this simple.
The girl mask was used first...I stamped some writing in Versamark and then clear embossed.
 Black soot was then applied so that the writing would pop.  
Which it did after wiping away any excess ink.
I then used the reverse mask to cover the inked area, 
added the mask for the background words
and inked again.
I've dribbled some black paint and
splattered some red and black paint. 
And to finish off I've added more text in black archival
and randomly scribbled around one side of the mask
because I wasn't game to go all the way around lol.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on this theme.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Beautiful design using stencils. I love the sillouette. No wonder the local store is closing if they can't keep up with the latest trends, it's sad. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Shirleyx

The writing certainly pops Dot and I love the dribbled black paint effect. Amazing colours, everything just screams artistic.
