Hello Fellow Crafters!
Thanks for dropping by.
Running late again, but better late than never, eh!
Do you ever get the feeling you may have bitten off more than you can chew? Well, it’s sticking in my throat right now, and whereas I usually plough through my workload quite happily, one day at a time, I am down to one hour at a time right now!
Here’s a beautiful stencil which is in a pack of 5 on TV tomorrow.
This one’s called Chase.
Our lovely Annie designed all of these;
they are very dreamy and whimsical.
Here, I have made the actual plastic part of the stencil black.
If you tune in tomorrow, and we have time, I will be happy to show you how this is done. If I don’t get to it, then I will do a step by step here next week. It’s not hard!
You need A5 Theuva White Card
and a Black Soot Distress pad.
If you have an 8"x10" Gelli Plate, brilliant.
Oh, and you need a Speedball brayer.
(By the way, did you know that the ALL the Distress pads are reduced from £4.50 to £3.50 this weekend?)
Dust over the top of the artwork with one of our stencil brushes and another Distress pad, Spun Sugar
Always sweep in one direction, so that it looks windy, or blustery.
Now do the same at the bottom of the artwork, using a third Distress Pad, Tumbled Glass. Beautiful colour.
Told you it was a piece of cake.
Mount on white, and send to a dreamer.
If you do have time tomorrow,
come and see some other stencil tricks, which these particular stencils really lend themselves well to.

Now I must pack and decide what to wear!
Or I could just sit in the garden and have a cup of tea....
Strong brew, milk, no sugar.
