New Sweet Poppy Stencils

Good morning Lovelies! So where has the Summer gone? I do hope this isn't the end of the warm sunny weather.

Today I'm sharing with you my DT samples using the gorgeous new Sweet Poppy Stencil - Black Tip (Dragon Head) I've named him Ol Handsome! Lol he's gorgeous don't you agree?

I made a small canvas (5" x 7") I used Dylusions paints with my fingers and a wet wipe to create a very random background, the Circles are one of the new Backplates, I inked with Hickory Smoke DI, Ol Handsome is inked using Archival, I just added a text stamp to create some interest and texture, I used a copper gilding wax around the edge.

I inked through the stencil with Distress inks, removed the stencil, washed and dried, replaced and skimmed over with Sweet Poppy Translucent paste, I finished off by dipping in clear micro beads, I always use a Magnetic sheet when working with the metal stencils along with Sweet Poppy Stencil tape, it's fabulous stuff, you don't need to de-tack, it comes off perfectly without tearing your card.

Now, I thought Ol Handsome here would make a fab looking Sea Serpent, so I used White Glossy paste and a selection of Blues and greens Sweet Poppy glitters, now these glitters are superb, so very very fine they are almost like dust, a much more muted sparkle, which I love, it's great for a more distressed effect or vintage projects.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you like Ol Handsome as much as I do? I must say "he's a huge hit with the rest of the SP DT too" please pop back again tomorrow, I will be featuring another New Stencil.

Have a great day xx Zoe xx
