A mystical Fairie today. This is a design by Sweet Poppy Stencils called ‘Fairie’. I’ve worked onto a background created with Cosmic Shimmer Ink Misters that I had in my stash. The fairie has been created with the stencil and Sweet Poppy Black Dimensional Paste. (more…)
This time last week I was running an all day workshop in the shop. One of the areas covered was Sweet Poppy Stencils. I had an idea for a card design using the Honeysuckle stencil in white onto a deep green background and so I took the opportunity to create my design ready. I used Dreamweaver white paste with a little sprinkle of clear glitter because I wanted a more matt textured effect than the glossy effect of the sweet poppy paste. (more…)
In contrast to yesterday’s pale and interesting project, today’s is definitely bold and beautiful!
My background was created using a mixture of Cosmic Shimmer Ink Misters (sorry it was one from my stash so not sure of the colours – but probably Lilac night and Midnight Blue with a bit of silver). (more…)
I have had this Phoenix glittered and awaiting a project for a while now. Never quite found the right creation for him – and I didn’t just want to do a simple mount and put onto a card. (more…)
Today’s creation is using a Sweet Poppy Stencil – the lovely Butterfly Tree design.
I started by fixing my stencil down with low tack stencil tape and coloured the trunk of the tree using Distress Inks in a couple of shades of brown – with a little yellow added too. I applied this using Cut n Dry foam. Don’t worry if your brown ink goes over a few edges of butterflies when you are doing the little branches, it won’t notice once you colour the rest of the design.
I thought this would work really well with a graduated colour change – rather than picking out particular butterflies to colour individual colours – well not on this occasion – I will do that on another project another time! (more…)
