Sweet Poppy

Sweet Poppy hugs

Happy Saturday!

I spent a lot of today organising some of my crafty supplies and made a huge pile of stamps. dies and stencils that I want to use ‘right now’ and set to work!

The main image is from a metal stencil from Sweet Poppy. It has been ages since I bought/used a metal stencil and I need to practice a little more with them. I found it really difficult to apply the ink through the narrow gaps (stems) – maybe I need a brush rather than a mini blending tool.

So, I soon abandoned that process and instead applied some texture paste… and then promptly bent said stencil when I was cleaning it. Told you I’m not used to metal stencils. I bent it back and will pop it under some books to make sure it flattens completely.

Anyway, it was easy to apply colour through the stencil once the texture paste was dry – I used Abandoned Coral and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide inks – two of my favourite colours!

I added a die from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit (from March 2018) and added a few pearls to finish it off.

I’m entering this into the current Color Throwdown challenge (coral, green, kraft and white).

Thanks for stopping by!
