ColorArtz and Cricut Stencil

Good morning and TGIF! I am relieved it is the weekend once again. I need a bit of R and R! We have dinner plans for Saturday, but otherwise no other commitments. Sometimes the running around starts to wear me down!

 I have a card today that seems a bit out of place for this time of year, but I hadn't posted it and wanted to make you aware of a new product by ColorArtz. It works in conjunction with the Cricut Stencil cartridge and works great on fabric, glass, paper etc. I chose to create a card, but I've seen many cool home decor projects done with it! You simply cut the image using your Cricut and use the negative space on the paper to create the stencil.  Then the fun part begins.  Place your ink in the ColorArtz tool and spray your colors on! It's super easy and gives such fun results!
The frame was cut using the Elegant Edges Cartridge and popped up with dimensional foam circles.  I added some machine stitching, rhinestones, and seam binding.  The tag was cut using the Sentimentals Cartridge. I added another rhinestone and a small piece of twine to finish it off!
I hope you have a wonderful relaxing weekend!  Thank you as always for popping by!  I am hoping this weekend to repay your visits! : )

Michelle - your air brushed (or Spray On) colors are sensational. I am swooning over your little tree card with the glorious copper colored ribbon. Just wonderful!
