It's the middle of the week and time to get festive .......... yes it's Merry Monday time!!
If it's been anything like it has here today, Christmas will be the last thing on your mind! We've had a beautiful day ...... clear blue skies and lots of warm sunshine. I'm just hoping it lasts, this could be summer! And ..... it's only a little over 2 weeks before the TT gets under way again .... eeek!!
This week's challenge is ..... all about using Stencils to create a Christmas card
Here's mine ......
I've used a Sweet Poppy Stencil and texture paste for my design. Classic black and white with a touch of sparkle ......
I added fine crystal glitter over the texture paste whilst it was still wet ....... sorry I couldn't capture the effect on camera, but trust me it is so sparkly in real life.
I used white pearlescent paint and a wet paintbrush to create the splatters in the background .....
And I finished off by using the stencil again inside my card, this time with a little Distress ink (Weathered Wood) before adding a festive greeting.
A Wink of Stella pen adds a touch of sparkle to the inside
Another one done for the Christmas box.
Not one to waste the nice weather I closed the old craft room door and nipped into town at lunchtime. Well I had a few bits to do, the bank etc., and then I met a friend for coffee. Well, it was supposed to be coffee but, it ended up being a lovely lunch out in the new tea room that's opened in Douglas ....... The Tea Junction. It was so nice ..... the guys in there were lovely, the food was delicious, and I even made room for cake (naughty!!!) Next time I think I'll have to try the Gin & Tonic ice lollies that they have on the menu!!!
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
Cheerio until next time
