Good evening Lovelies! Wow it's been a scorcher today :) love the warm sunny weather! Well we had a 7 mile bike ride yesterday and 8 mile today! Phew! It was fab though, I'm trying very hard to get fitter and hopefully lose a bit of lard too!
Tonight I'm sharing with you my first 2 cards I've made as part of Sweet Poppy Stencils design team! The lovely Lucy Ellis invited me to join the team and of course I was very excited to accept.
My first card I used the Stencil to ink through first, then once it was heat dried I placed the stencil back over the red design, I use a magnetic sheet under the card, it anchors the stencil down better, I masked off all the part of card I didn't want marked, then using the translucent texture paste with the special spreader tool I scraped the paste over, removed the tape carefully, being sure to leave the top strip in place, as to create a "hinge" then I covered with clear glass Micro beads over the wet paste and left in a safe place to dry over night, so tempting to touch it! Lol
My second card I have used Pan Pastels with a sun mask to create the background, I dusted over the sun with a gold metallic PP to give a lovely shimmer. The stamps are from Dylusions which was stamped with Versafine and I coloured parts in with white pen to give some dimension, then using the same method as the first one I used Black Glossy Texture Paste through the stencil, I didn't use any micro beads for this one, the little bats are dies
I hope you like my cards, please pop along to Sweet Poppy Stencils here for all your stencilling materials.
Have a great evening and thank you for visiting xx Zoe xx
