Morning Peeps, time for a new challenge at Allsorts where Lorraine would like to see creations 'For a Child. And a very fitting prize of some Wizard of Oz stamps from Bee Crafty plus three images from Ruth Hamilton Design.
Also some details and shares for upcoming shows at The Craft Store, on Sunday there is an Oakwood show at 3pm featuring iCraft products (which includes some super stencils) and on Tuesday Stamp Addicts are back at 1pm.
This card was for the Godchild of one of our DIL's, she wanted Fairies and Animals and was thrilled with this. All stamps are from Lavinia, a soft Oxide background, a rather large sun, the images grounded with some soft sponging and lashings of Lavinia glitter with an envie to match.
Above using Stamp Addicts Starburts stamped onto a hexies cut from a Gelli Plate panel and a die cut sentiment.
I was lucky to have several new iCraft stencils in my package and here's what I did with a few, above using Crocodile Crackle stencil and Little Critters die set. Oakwood have a huge selection on stencils, probably the most I've come across in any one place.
Above using Floral Corner stencilled onto acetate coloured with Alcohol ink, the pattern across the acetate came about purely by accident, I laid it on a radiator to dry and the pattern appeared which I rather liked. The texture paste and crackle glaze below is not on the web site but in the show Sunday, but I'm impressed. It's pretty firm with a grainy finish and dries in minutes, I tested it out with paints and inks once dry, it took dye inks pretty well and fabulous if you place the stencil back over when dry and spray with Oxide and Mica strays.....which is exactly what I did below using three colours of Distress Mica spray.
Above using the half Mandela stencil reversed and black gesso mixed with texture paste to create a circle.
Have a good weekend and as always my appreciation for your kind visits and words of encouragement.
