Sweet Poppy Stencils and .......Micro Beads!

Yo ho bloggers... been playing with Distress inks, a pot of Translucent Paste a Sweet Poppy Stencil and some clear Micro beads.
Loads of fun.
I positioned the stencil, stuck it down using lo tac masking tape and with Fired Brick and Barn Door distress inks I applied the ink to the image through the stencil with some blending foam.


I removed the stencil and dried the inks with a heat gun. After cleaning the stencil attach it back into place and tape it firmly down again.

I applied Translucent Paste from Sweet Poppy Stencils and after very carefully removing the stencil, covered the image with the clear Micro Beads.
Please leave to dry for several hours .... the paste will dry clear to reveal your super colours ... do not be tempted to touch!
Thanks for looking today .. back later with a tag and a brand new die, it's lush!
