I recently purchased Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mod Cactus stamps, and I hadn’t had a chance to play with them yet. When I saw the Cozy Knit Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs, I just knew they would work perfectly together. I cut a piece of cream colored cardstock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, laid the Cozy Knit Stencil on top, and sprayed it with Crackling Campfire and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Sprays. That stencil gets nice and covered with spray, right? So be sure to have an extra piece of cardstock nearby so that you can flip that stencil on to it to get a second background easily!
For the cactus, I stamped one with Crushed Olive Distress Oxide, and the other with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide. The detail layer was done with VersaFine Clair Ink in Pinecone. For additional detail, I had a really old strip sentiment that I added, plus a few of the new blue rhinestones from the Bold collection from Doodles Paper Playground.
The Cozy Knit Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs reminded me of a handknit southwestern blanket when sprayed with these colors, so those cactus stamps worked perfectly.
