Sweet Poppy Stencils

I received my new Poppy Stencils and have had a play.  I love the stencils they are so good to work with.   Here are the results of a very quick play.  I'd take longer if I were making them for cards, but I just couldn't wait to have a quick dabble.
I've used distress inks, translucent paste and micro beads. 
Dress no2

Same technique again, distress inks, translucent paste and micro beads.
Shoe no 1

I'd love a pair of shoes like these the design is so elegant.  Again same technique, distress inks, translucent paste and micro beads.
Over the weekend I'm hoping to have time for a more leisurely play with them.
