Good morning Lovelies, here's the first of 2 posts from me this morning. This one featuring the fantastic New Steampunk Style Stencils from Sweet Poppy! By a fab new Designer - Emma Cronin!
The lovely Lucy Ellis aka Sweet Poppy Stencils will be back on our screens on Wednesday 6th August on Create And Craft with these new designs and some fab techniques.
My first sample I've used linen texture card from Papermill direct, I coloured using DI and masks to create my scene, the using a magnetic sheet beneath my card to position my mask, I went about colouring again using Distress inks, I then removed the stencil and dried the ink with a heat tool and washed my stencil in warm soapy water, dried thourghly, then carefully put back into place, applied a layer of Sweet Poppy Translucent paste, removed the stencil then covered with clear Micro beads, and left to dry over night.
My second card, I used the same texture card, I coloured my sun using Pan Pastels and set with cheap hairspray, I used the cogs background stencil with some Freyed Burlap DI, the wonderful Mechanical horse stencil is gilding flakes, I think you'll agree he's rather magnificent!
