Craftin Desert Divas: Sneak Peek (Skatin By!)

Have you been following Craftin Desert Divas this week? We are Day 2 of sneak peaks for the July release! Check out the card I created using Skatin By! I also used the new release Swirl stencil.

I haven't used stencils in the longest time - to be honest I'd say if I tried to open any of my mixed media pastes/art supplies they'd all be rock's been that long! So for my cards today I traced the stencil and used the scan and cut feature (PixScan) on my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the swirl design from three different pieces of coloured card. This allowed me to mix and match colours and create three cards.
For each card I added a machine stitched border and lines to highlight the swirl. I also added Craftin Desert Divas sequins and finished each card off with a twine bow.

The Skatin By animals were coloured in with Copic Markers - which I have listed below:
