Meet Polly from Sweet Poppy Stencils.

Yo ho everyone, I'm having a few Sweet Poppy Stencils days and lovin it!
Meet Polly the Parrot find him here.
This is how I created him using Translucent Paste and Micro beads  both available from Sweet Poppy Stencils.

I attached the stencil to some White Linen card stock and coloured the image through the stencil with Distress Inks.
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.  
Apply Translucent Paste  then very carefully remove the stencil and cover the image with clear Micro Beads.
Leave the card to dry overnight .... don't be tempted to touch!
Have fun.
I'll be back soon with more Sample projects from
Sweet Poppy Stencils
Thank you for looking today.
