A  quick spray with a mist of water then dried  with a heat gun.
Super new stencils from Wendy Vecchi were plonked over the top
and more Distress inks applied through the images.
After that, it's 'tarting up' time with 
white acrylic paint and a couple of bottle tops.
A white pen for the dots and Rangers Liquid Enamel 
for splodgeing around as yer do!
Finally... a good flick or two with some dark ink 
from a paint brush ... and it's job done!

Sweet Poppy Stencils on Create and Craft TV Saturday 17th August.

Morning all
Sweet Poppy Stencils with the lovely Lucy are back on the telly.
Saturday Morning at 11am Sky 671 Create and Craft TV
Lucy's DT have sent along a few samples for the show
These are some of mine. 
 'Pegasus' is coloured 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

Love this Tree and the technique is the same as above.

What a Handsome Chap on this card! 
So quick, just using some White Glossy Paste 
and a small dab or two of glitter.
All of the Stencil images on this post
 were designed by Tracey Dutton of Lavinia Stamps 
Thank you for looking today
BTW, the comments left for me on my last post 
were AMAZING thank you so much!

Lavinia Stamps and Dylusions Spray Inks

Morning bloggers, a new challenge from
 Lavinia Stamps starts today! 
You could win a WHOPPING £40 voucher 
 to spend in the Lavinia Stamps web shop.
 Pop over and see the super inspiration
 from our Design Team and get crafting!

No need to spend hours creating a project unless you want to.
This tag was a 10 minute job! ... A quick spray down onto my craft mat with various colours of the Dylusions inks, I just love 'em. Then a fast 'dunk' into the ink with my tag and after drying with a heat gun I blended some Black Soot distress ink around the edges. The Lavinia Poppy Pods were stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink and I applied Sepia Glossy accents to the images. Very fast but I'm pleased with the result ... go on, join in this month... you know you want to!
