Imagine Crafts New StazOn Pads from Tsukineko
Stencils and Dies Prize Package

I was so inspired by yesterday's projects using the irRESISTible sprays that I had to try them for myself! Here's what I created for you today:
LL3039 Owl buddy, DG751 Nesting Owls, LJ849 Bare Trees
He has a few steps, but I had so much fun and love how he turned out. Follow the directions to create your own design!

  • Place the Owl buddy stencil (LL3039) on cream cardstock in the bottom of your spray box
  • Shake the Bronze irRESISTible spray from imagine crafts vigorously
  • Spray over stencil until you get the level of coating you like (too much will cause some leaking under the stencil edges)
  • Lift off the stencil and place in water for cleaning, let the owl dry
  • Meanwhile, place the clean stencil face down on a paper towel in the spray box
  • Spray over the back of the stencil with the Bronze spray until a nice coating covers the stencil
  • Carefully lift the stencil by the edges and take it out of the box onto a clean paper towel
  • Immediately lay a piece of glossy cardstock over the inked stencil, rub it gently, then peel it off (you have to work quickly because the irRESISTible starts to dry immediately)
  • Place the stencil in water and let the glossy paper dry
  • Repeat the process with the Bare Trees stencil (LJ849) on glossy cardstock to create the background - you must move very quickly with this one because of all the thin bridges
  • Use the matching owl from the Nesting Owls die set (DG751) to cut the pieces from the owl that was sprayed on natural cardstock. It's easy to line the die up over the sprayed image, cutting side toward the image, tape in place, and run through your machine
  • Edge each piece with a black marker, I used the Memento Tuxedo Black marker from imagine crafts
  • Glue each piece in place on the glossy cardstock image
  • Mat the owl and the trees on black mats
  • Add some beautiful ribbon from May Arts
  • The cardstock for the base card was too stark so I used an ink blusher from imagine crafts to rouge on some of their beautiful Delicata Golden Glitz ink, it gave a golden shimmer to the cardstock that matched the ribbon perfectly

Here's what the glossy image looked like before the die cut piece were added, and the negative
left over after die cutting (which will be used in a different project!)

Just Imagine the possibilities of what everyone else has created!

Happy Creating,

The trees stencil goes wonderfully with the owl. Such a beautiful combination.

Great job...and I can tell from your description of the process that you have to work quickly with the irResistible sprays, it's been a learning curve for me too, but they have been a lot of fun. Thanks for the nice detail in your post.
