Not had much chance to blog recently....stuff happens. But having had stuch a fab time at the Hobby Craft and Stitches day at the NEC Birmingham on Tuesday, I thought I should get back into the groove! And while I'm at it I'll enter it into the Craft Stamper challenge which for this month is Stencilling. Love this months issue.
I recently found out a neighbour has been diagnosed with breast cancer and wanted to make her a bright pretty card. Having got my hands on one of the soon to be released stamp sets ESN14 by Sara Naumann from PaperArtsy I knew exactly what to use. I'm also planning my next workshop which will be based around using stencils so those two things together helped me come up with a quick and simple plan using dye based inks.
On a piece of white card I stencilled through the Dylusions Luscious Leaves stencil usint Spun Sugar then Pickled Raspberry distress inks in alternate directions.
I then added a strip of ribbon, adhered the flowers, added glass beads to the middle, some pink gems to and a stamped sentiment. I used a white acrylic paint pen to the base kraft card to make dots and a Signo Uniball pen for the wiggly lines. Finally adding the decorated white card to the base card. I should have taken more time to ensure the sentiment looked straighter, but then it is a handmade card and I know my friend will appreciate it just the same!
Have fun all.
