Day 2 - New Sweet Poppy stencils

Good morning Lovelies, fellow crafters and bloggers, the sun is shining at the mo woohoo!

Today I'm sharing a rather unusual and clever design from Sweet Poppy. For those "Steampunk" fans you will love this tree designed by the very talented Emma Cronin.

My first card I masked off the frame and inked through the stencil with Versamark, removed and washed my stencil, then added some "Sticky Embossing Powder" you literally just heat it until it changes being careful not to overheat as it loses its sticky if overdone, then I added my flakes, rubbed over with my hand to make sure it was covered then using a scrubby sponge thing scrubbed it until the flakes revealed the design.

My second card I used Sweet Poppy White Glossy paste, while the stencil was still in place I added Mica Powders in Silver, Gold and Plum, I removed the stencil and immersed into warm soapy water straight away, I then tapped off all the loose powder and heated with my heat tool until it bubbled, let cool then give it a good buff with a soft dry cloth.

I used the White Glossy paste, removed the stencil and then used the fantastic Sweet Poppy glitters, I actually used my mixture bag (dregs I've collected that have mixed up colours) there's all sorts in there, I used the same technique for the sentiment too also SP

Thank you for visiting, be sure to pop along and check out the new designs, have a great day xx Zoe xx
