Playing about

Yesterday I had time for a play around with inks and stencils, here's a few of the results.
This is one of the Sweet Poppy stencils, used with the gold paste.
Another Sweet Poppy stencil, used with inks, translucent paste and micro beads.  Not too sure about this one, maybe a different coloured background i.e. black or without micro beads, will have some more plays and see if I can't improve on this one.
Lastly, Lavinia stamps.  I used the texture stamp and the mushrooms, along with pan pastels.
I have an idea to try a theatre card using the same stamps but giving it more depth.  So today I might be doing a lot of intricate cutting out, hope patience is with me.
When I've finished today's experiments, I hope to have time to mount them as cards.
Ideas using acetate are also popping thru my head.

Right, dog walking time then down to some serious playing.
Happy crafting all.


  1. All fab....love the Christmas lamp, and your Lavinia card is brilliant. Hope you're entering in into the challenge. Great work, glad you're finding time to play xx

  2. You have certainly got the 'Sweet Poppy' techniques under your belt!
    super examples of some very pretty work.
    Looking forward to seeing the finished cards.
