Bold and bright


Morning Peeps, it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts, our host this week is Mervi who is asking us to create something with 'Spots, Stripes and Plaids'.

I decided it was time to give this new A4 Aall and Create stencil called 'Totally Dotty' an outing as it's been floating around my desk for weeks and it inspired me to have a little play. I inked the stencil with Distress Oxides, spritzed with water and placed over a piece of card and rubbed gently to release the colour. Once dried I placed the stencil back in place and sprayed yellow Dylusions, then stamped with Penny Black stamps using Versafine Clair.

Stay safe and well everyone and if you have sunshine, then enjoy.

This is wonderful Brenda! It reminds me of a screen print with such depth and the most gorgeous colours. What a brilliant sentiment too - you are single handedly cheering us all up! Vicky x

Sarah said...

This is fabulous Brenda, the background appears dimensional, not sure how you did it but it's very clever!! After a very windy day yesterday we have had wall to wall sunshine today and managed a good couple of hours sorting out the greenhouse and repairing some fence rails that Wills Wills rubbed until they snapped!! xx

Oh Brenda this is stunning - love your vibrant background with the silhouette leaves over it.
We have rain here, but it is most welcome as we were getting very dry for this time of year...
Stay safe

I wondered if it was the Aall and create stencil - I have been tempted by it many times. You've achieved so much dimension using it, looks great and fab colour combo.

Soooo happy. I have a delivery slot for Thursday. I logged in on the off chance and only 4 slots were showing for the whole of this week so I nabbed one. I don't normally see this lovely poppy as it flowers when I am not at home so I have never seen the colour of it. I also have a pretty bright orange one that has just come into flower. Hugs Mrs A.
