Gallery Idol round # 3

Hello Everybody!!

Now I´m in Round # 3 of Gallery Idol. I´m one among Top 15.
I checked the Papercrafts connection blog link again and again to believe it.And yes I made it!!

I want to thank you all who voted for me in round # 2. And hope you will vote me for this round too.

Here is my card for Round # 3

closer view

                                                  The theme for Round # 3 is "Stencils".
For this card I have used five different stencils, out of that one is self made stencil.

First using dotted round stencil I applied modelling paste on the card blank and black paper. I added little orange acrylic colour to this paste.

Then using another stencil I applied modelling paste on vellum. I added turquoise acrylic colour and bit of glitter powder to it. And then did distresssing using orange versa colour and yellow dye ink.
With another dotted line stencil, I made one orange strip where I did heat embossing with champagne colour powder and then did distressing.

For the Butterfly, I borrowed my daughter´s stencil. I applied strukturesnow paste. Its kind of granular modelling paste and then I added orange acrylic colour to the paste. I tried it with a brush since it was a thick stencil. And then I did fussy cutting.

 This is a self made stencil using Die cut shapes and then i added thick layer of turquoise paste and added tiny beads to it. 

Sentiments are from the craft´s meow. Added some sequins, silver floss and bit of stitching!!
Thats my take on Stencil theme. Hope you like it.
