Sweet Poppy Stencil, DecoArt Crackle paste and Fresco chalk paints.

Good afternoon, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend?

I had a wonderful day with some wonderful ladies at Eileen Godwin's Workshop in Rochester, we ate cake, laughed and crafted, a perfect combo in my opinion! My makes from the workshop are at the bottom of this post, first I'd like to share a "Plaque" I've made, it was inspired by a fab card Eileen Godwin posted on her blog you can check it out here,

I started by sponging Fresco chalk paint by Paperartsy onto card, I dried it then sponged over a slightly darker shade but patchy so it has a motterly effect, once dry I stamped using a Vintage script stamp by Inkylicious in a couple of places using black Archival ink, I then used "The Striped Reed set" from Designs by Ryn stamps, once all dry I then took "Teardrop Background" Sweet Poppy Stencil and placing it randomly onto my card and masking off the rest of the card, then spread a thick layer of DecoArt Crackle Paste, over the stencil, once I removed the stencil I cleaned it straight away in warm soapy water. I left it to dry over night, once dry and the cracks had appeared I rubbed some Pebeo gilding wax over the stencilled design, I used the 2 golds, just to get a bit more texture, I filled in the reeds with white gel pen to highlite them and make them "pop".

Here are my Workshop makes.

 

Thank you so much for visiting today, have a great rest of the day xx Zoe xx
