Over at Try it on Tuesday our challenge for the next 2 weeks is Use a stencil or two.
I had fun creating this page using a couple of stencils for the crackle texture and the background text. I hope you’re inspired to use a stencil to join our challenge too; it would be lovely to see you there!
I started by applying Distress Inks to the background by pressing the stamp pad onto a blending mat, spritzing them with water and then pressing the mat onto the page; the colours included Speckled Egg, Fossilized Amber, Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade and Salty Ocean.
When dry, I stencilled some Ranger Crackle Texture Paste over the top using a Moroccan stencil from Creative Expressions and left it to dry overnight.
Next I added the text using a stencil from Crafter’s Workshop and some Speckled Egg Distress Ink. The pretty flower was a Penny Black sticker which I mounted onto some white cardstock and stuck in place using double-sided tape. The wording was a Kaisercraft sticker and reads “Live Laugh Love”. To finish, I recycled three stone discs from an old necklace to embellish the page and I added a pearl gemstone to the centre of each stone.
For more inspiration please pop over to Try it on Tuesday and take a look you at the amazing creations from our Guest Designer and my Design Teamies (grin!).
As T Stands for Tuesday, I’m sharing my cup of Ceylon Tea with a hot cross bun which was lightly toasted and buttered – yum! Happy T Day everyone!
Hoping that you’re all staying safe and well!
