Stencil of the Month with Brutus Monroe


Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card using new products from:

In my post on March 23rd I gave you a sneak peek of this stencil!  I absolutely
love it.  And how wonderful it looks on this card!  Let me show you how I
made my project.
First I cut a piece of heavy black card stock - it was an 8" x 8" piece.  I
laid my stencil over it after applying Pixie Spray to the back of the stencil.
It's such an intricate stencil so the Pixie Spray really helped!  I spread on
a thin coast of the Blue Galaxy Glaze and set it aside to dry.

This is a color shifting medium (yes, please!), so it looks completely
different in different lighting.

I left it until it was completely dry and then cut it down to 
4  x 5 1/2".
I stamped out the 3 hummingbirds from the Hummingbird Flight
Stamp Set which is one of the sets in the newest release!   Such
a pretty set!  

I stamped them onto Neenah 80lb Classic Crest Solar White card stock.

I used a mix of my Copic markers to color as I wanted bright rich color.

Copic colors used:
V17, BV08, BV13
B32, B23, B29, B63
YG06, G14
BG15, BG49
Once the coloring was finished I fussy cut the birds and then went
along the edges with a black brush marker.
I adhered my black panel onto a teal A2 size top folding note card.
I also used some Teal Mirror Peel-offs down each side.
I adhered my hummingbirds flat to the surface of my card.  For
extra sparkle I added tiny silver stars and tiny iridescent gems.
And that finished my card!

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial!  I had fun making it and using the
new Galaxy Glaze!  I have more ideas for the stamp set and the Glaze 
so be on the look out for those in upcoming posts!  You can find the
products at:
