More DT Samples for Sweet Poppy Stencils.... Create and Craft TV. Saturday 22nd June 4pm

 Yo ho little bloggers. If you love using Sweet Poppy Stencils and want to own a few more, tune into Create and Craft TV on Saturday 22nd June at 4pm and see some brand new designs.
Plus some popular favourites. They are fantastic! 

'Thank You', created using Gold Paste on the stencil, that was placed in the middle of the circle constructed by stamping around in a circle with various colours of distress inks, using just ONE tiny foliage stamp from Lavinia Stamps.
I used a Nestabilities Circle die as a guide. My friend Melissa gave me this idea! 

I adore this Poppy, designed by Tracey Dutton from Lavinia stamps for Sweet Poppy Stencils.

Colour the 'Poppy' image through the stencil. Remove the stencil and dry the inks with a heat gun.  

After cleaning the stencil I attached it back into place and taped it firmly down again with some lo tac tape. I applied Translucent Paste and after very carefully removing the stencil, I covered the image with clear Micro Beads and left the card  to dry overnight.... don't be tempted to touch!
Thanks for looking today ... more samples tomorrow.
