Good morning Lovelies, well here we are again with some more samples I've made for Sweet Poppy Stencils, these are due to be realsed on the 23rd jan for sale and will be featured on Create and Craft TV on the 7fth feb @ 11am.
The Design team and I were very excited to receive our stencils (eagerly awaited none the less) and took no time at all to put them to work, love love love them all, such beautiful designs and some of them by the very talented Tracey Dutton - Aka Lavinia Stamps.
I used Rose Red and Orange Brusho's with some gold Distress stain on my craft mat, spritzed with water and swooshed my card through it, dried it and repeated to get more depth of colour, technique otherwise known as "Wrinkle free distressing" sadly the subtle gold metallic doesn't really show up in the photo, I simply used Black Diamond Sparkle Medium through the Dotty Flower stencil, simple but very effective I think?
Brusho's background again, just sprinkled onto wet card then spritzed again, the gorgeous Flarol Spray stencil designed by Tracey Dutton, this time I used Gold SP texture paste and whilst wet after removing the stencil I sprinkled with Black Brushos and left to dry, in the photo the flowers look completely black but in the flesh they look "Rustic", the word from Angelic Words stencil using black soot DI.
A canvas using Dotty Flowers with pearlescent paste, once dry I used Silks Acrylics on a dry brush in sweeping sideways strokes to create a random messy effect lol, I edged the canvas, the die cut word and the flowers with silver gilding wax and added a few dew drops, I have to say "this was an experiment and not my favourite one by far" in fact I'm not even sure I like it at all? But thought I'd show it anyway.
And my final one for today using this stunning Floral Delights stencil I simply inked through using Distress inks having first embossed the word, a few iridescent sequins here and there and a cute Ladybird to finish off, job done, simple but pretty.
Thank you for finding the time to visit, I hope you have a fab day, Zoe xx
