Good morning everyone , thank you for popping in today.
I am very pleased to tell you that I am hosting the new Challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog...and I have chosen a recipe for my theme,,,
Create a design and have some fun,
Use this recipe and your work will be done,
Just use black and white to make a start,
But then add some red , a flowers and a little love heart......X
We are sponsored this time by Sweet Lilac Flowers...do check out their website...
Here is what I created...hope you like it...
I started by using a piece of Stencil card and masking off a strip.
One thing that I have learnt is to add extra protection, as it is so easy to get ink where you don't want it.
I brushed some Slate, Adirondach ink into the area,
Followed by some hickory smoke , to give depth.
Next some water spritzing , just to add some interest.
On to the stamps, these are the new poppy and meadow grasses stamps from Clarity...they haven't left my desk since I got them ..I just love them...
I used black Archival ink and then added some white paint spots.
It is amazing how lovely just black and white can look.
Then onto the border , I am having so much fun at the moment , creating lots of new borders.
A lovely white wooden heart, and some Sweet Lilac flowers.
Oh and a touch of red , remember the recipe.
A word stamp from the word chains, some matting and layering and the design was completed.
I do hope you join in with the fun and see what you come up with....also do hop over to the blog and see the wonderful creations from the rest of the DT....ladies you really have gone the extra mile for this one...thanks... http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk
