And in other fun news, we have 4 brand new Crow Stencils, which were requested by my friend Maryjo Mcgraw! You can never have too many crows.

We also have these fun new Valentine's Day Red Acrylic ATC Frames! Each set comes with 2 ATC Frames, the inserts, and some sweet hearts. Supplies are limited on these fun sets. I love how they are semi-transparent and the image underneath peeks through just a bit.

Here is a cute Valentine's Day ATC I made using the new 4 Crows Stencil and the new Valentine's Day ATC Frame. I started with a Masonite ATC Blank and attached one of the background images from Collage Sheet DP253 using Mod Podge. I painted the background lightly with white acrylic paint and then doodled lightly with pencil. Next I stenciled on the crow using red and black ink pads and Color Dusters. The Color Dusters work great with our stencils. I also used them to add the light brown in the background. You can build layers so your ink can be light (the brown) or darker (the crow). The other awesome thing about our stencils is that they are made from stencil board which is treated with oils to help absorb the ink and paint so you don't get feathering or bleeding out! To finish the piece I did more doodling with a fine Sharpie. Note, the string spells out "love" (you may have to turn your head a bit) and there is also a small heart which I filled with Silver Stickles, though the silver is difficult to see in the photo. Finally I attached the Red Frame using 1/8" Crystal Clear Double-sided Incredi-tape which worked beautifully and was totally invisible once attached! The finished ATC is displayed on a Masonite ATC Stand.

Be sure to check back in on Thursday. We have yet another fantastic dual giveaway. Denise just might be "baking" again for us! xoxo
