Sweet Poppy Stencils. New Designs June 2016 - A Picture Tutorial, Steampunk Dragonfly and Brusho Paints.

Yo! A Picture Tutorial  for you today, featuring a Brand New Stencil, from Sweet Poppy Stencils The Steampunk Dragonfly. Designed by the very talented, Emma Cronin.
I've put together a quick step by step tutorial for you . 
A square, 13cms piece, of cold pressed Watercolour card, 
Versamark Ink
WOW Opaque Bright White Super Fine
 Embossing Powder  

Impression Obsession Random Circles Stamp
This is a very large stamp! 
Stamp with Versamark Ink and heat emboss the Circles Image

Sprinkle/shake on tiny
Oi! I said TINY, amounts of the Brusho Paint crystals,
 in a few colours of your choice.
 Mist with water to activate the paints.
Don't over do it with the water. Get a look you like 
When the card stock is dry ( I did not use a heat gun because of the embossing) tape the stencil down firmly, with low tack stencil tape and stencil the image using black ink. I found Black Stazon worked well for this and I also blended some around the edges too.

Randomly stamp the Indigoblu Bubbles Stamp towards the outer edges of the card. I used Stazon, again, as it allowed me to stamp over the white embossing. I cleaned my stamp with baby wipes, not chemical cleaners!

The ink dries fast, so in I went, to decorate the ''bubbles'' stamped area, with a Gold Glitter Pen and some Dr Ph.Martin's 'Bleed Proof' White, that comes in a jar and stays white over Brusho Paints. 
I dipped the end of a small ball tool into the Bleed Proof stuff and applied it with that.

Next came a Seth Apter designed die cut, by Spellbinders called ''Splatter Proof '' available from Oyster Stamps.

A little more Gold Glitter Pen here and there and its job done... 

I hope you found this Post useful.
