New Crafter's Workshop @ Taylored Expressions!!


Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday to you!!!

Taylored Expressions is hosting a blog hop today to showcase the new Crafter's Workshop Templates now available! I am sure you will get TONS of ideas and inspiration from my fellow Baker's Dozen members!!!

I had the pleasure of working with the Cherry Blossoms Template! What fun! There are SO many ways you can use these stencils (sponging, Maya Mist etc...), but I chose to use mine to create a gorgeous background with my Copic Airbrush System!

I started with a piece of Frosted Pink Cardstock and I simply placed the Cherry Blossoms Template over my cardstock and airbrushed the design right onto my card! I used R21, Sardonyx, as my airbrush color, and it gives SUCH a soft background!!

I also airbrushed another piece of Frosted Pink Cardstock using the Cherry Blossoms Template and then stamped the large butterfly from Discover Your Wings right over the pattern. I then cut out the butterfly and viola! A perfectly decorated butterfly!!

I am LOVING the look that I achieved with this Template and I can't wait to stock up on some more! It's such a fun, different way to get a gorgeous background (as opposed to patterned paper or dry embossing).

The layout is the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge from this past Friday, TESC109, and all the stamps are from Discover Your Wings by Taylored Expressions. I added some of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to each butterfly (which were all cut out and popped up on foam tape on top of layered Circle Nestabilities) as well as on the Upper Crust Border. I LOVE the sentiment on the bottom, "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." Isn't that gorgeous??? All of the butterflies, and the airbrushed background, received a light spritz of Bubblegum Maya Mist.

Check out what the rest of the gals did with these awesome templates right here!!
