To create this fun Spring wall hanging, you will need a piece of acrylic (ClearScraps mini albums work great for these), a stencil, StazOn ink. You MUST use StazOn on acrylic or it will rub off.


1. Tape your stencil in place.


2. Using a Sponge Dauber, lightly daub the StazOn ink over the stencil.


3. Lift off the stencil.  Finish the edges with StazOn Opaque Baby Blue.


4.  Using Memento Luxe ink and an InkBlusher, color the Monterey Pine Butterflies for embellishments.


5.  Add paper, ribbons, and other embellishments to complete your wall hanging.
