Mixed Media Panel: Stencils and Color Burst

Today I am going to share a mixed media piece I created by combining a collage stencil from Rebecca Baer Designs with Ken Oliver's Color Burst powders.
I used the medium sized Cascades stencil from Rebecca Baer Designs for today's project:
I started by positioning the stencil on top of a 6"x6" piece of Mixed Media Art Board.
I chose Turquoise, Chartreuse and Lime Green Color Burst and sprinkled the tiniest amount of concentrated powder into the openings of the stencil.
Next came my favorite part!  As I spritzed it with water I could see the colors activate and start to blend!  I removed the stencil and let it dry thoroughly.
Using waterproof, permanent black ink, I stamped a female figure directly onto the art board.
I re-stamped the image onto white cardstock and then heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  I trimmed out just the corset area of the figure and adhered it on top of the original stamped image.
I used the Turquoise Color Burst to tint these flowers and then cut them apart to create a skirt for my figure.
I used a heat gun to make sure the background was completely dry before I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments.  I added horizontal lines with washi tape and 3mm black rhinestones.
To finish things up I adhered an engraved metal token and a piece of turquoise rhinestone over the heart of the stamped image and added some tiny stamped hearts on her sleeve.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
