Rochester Workshop December 2016 Group One - The Results

It was a calmer, much more relaxed Workshop
 last Saturday, because I allowed my students
 more time to play while I lounged around eating
 chocolate and generally doing ... not a lot! 
The results the ladies came up with were
Well done YOU, my Group One Crew.
See you on Saturday10th Group Two! 
Barbara Cleggett... I LOVE mince pies .. 
Just sayin xx  

 Thanks for looking today.

Crealies Flower Dies used as a Stencilled Background.

Today, I've been invited to be the
Guest Designer on the Crealies Blog.
The main features of the card I'm sharing 
 with you, are the very pretty Flower Dies.
 I've cut the largest flower  with copier paper
and used the negative image, stencilling with 
White Gesso, as a resist, for the background.

Various colours of Memento inks were blended over the top
 of the gesso flowers, giving a 'ghostly look' that I love.
 I added more 'interest' in layers to my card
 with another stencil and ink, Small Circles before
stamping three or four times using the  
Bits and pieces stamps no.53 and no.12 the Stars.

 The main features are the beautiful Die Cut
 Flowers, a set of three, Stansen No. 26.
All layers of the flower were cut using some 
inky, painted, stamped and stencilled old backgrounds,
 on card-stock that was left over from another Art Project.
Crealies also stock Word Dies, 'Thanks' is one of them.
Cut four times and layered, using the white Bazzill.
This Die will be a FIRM favourite
   I love the plain, no fuss or frills font 
and I'm ordering some more! 
Thank you for looking at my project today .
