Crealies New Patchwork Die No 1. Along With A Few Stencils.

Hello Everyone .. A quick post to share a few cards with you, created using some brand new Dies from Crealies called Patchwork Dies.

I'm featuring the Patchwork Number 1 set, along with a beautiful Poppy Stencil from Sweet Poppy Stencils and Hibiscus Flowers from Designs by Ryn.

All the images were coloured, through the stencils, using brightly coloured inks, then I applied some 'Sparkle Gel' from Imagination Crafts over the top, through the stencils. I removed the stencil and allowed the gel to dry.  More samples soon from the three other sets available direct from Crealies or Oyster Stamps in the UK.

Thanks for looking at my Blog today.

See you soon.

Bleeding Art Tissue Technique and a Donna Downey Stencil

Hello  ... just a very quick post tonight, to share this 10 x 8 Canvas with you .
Once again its the ''Bleeding Art Tissue'' technique.  See my You Tube Video Here. 

I think you know by now, how much I enjoy using this technique. I've used a few other stencils, along with some Aquawax (as a resist) and Distress inks, for the background layers, before placement of the main, Poppy image.

The Bleeding Art Tissue is from Amazon UK and the Donna Downey Stencil, Poppy Forest, is available from Oyster Stamps. 

Thanks for looking today .
Back soon
