Glitter, Stencils and Sticky Paper

We have a challenge in our Yahoo! group this month of using a brass stencil in some way.  I chose to use glitter.

The stencil I used is from Stencilabilities.  The technique I used is this:  You soap up the stencil so it doesn't stick permanently, but you use double-sided sticky paper to adhere the stencil to a piece of cardstock.  Then you use glitter (I used my multi-pack of Martha Stewart glitter) and carefully use it to "color" your stencil.  When finished, you remove the stencil and sprinkle clear glitter over the rest.  I matted this piece with some green shimmery cardstock and mounted on foam squares.  The two different patterned papers are both from a Green Matstack from Die Cuts With a View.  The sentiment is a rub-on from Stampin' Up!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

This sounds terribly tricky Lynette. It turned out amazing. If I tried this ....it would be a mess not gorgeous like yours.
