Make each day count.

Good morning everyone,
I hope you are feeling well today. 
I have just got back after a very wet dog walk with Eric, I am 
hoping that the day will get brighter. 
Yesterday I went up to Kendal to see my parents. 
It is my Dads birthday tomorrow, 
so I went to surprise him.
Thanks Mum and Chris for keeping my visit a secret.
Now you know me, 
I just finished making his card on Monday afternoon.
Last minute dot com here...

I do hope some of you are the same and that it’s not just me...

Today I am going to share one of my samples for 
Aall & Create.

As you know I love using stencils alongside my stamps. 



I had a great time making this, and I do think you could add family photos into the film strip
That would be really cool.

The stencil is #82, film strip by Aida Domisiewicz



I started by taping my stencil using low tack tape, 
I then dabbed the Archival ink through the stencil using a make up sponge. 

This is a great way to use old ink pads 



I added some splats of ink and water and then attached it to my backing card. 

Next I cut three pieces of card , just the correct size to fit into the film strip. 


I stamped them up and added some colour, using Inktense pencils .
I used stamps #199 Eclectic Stamps and #200 Hope 
And then #210 Background mashup for the background 
All by my lovely friend Tracy Evans. 
 
We are using these on Saturday in our Carnforth class....whoop.
It is such a lovely project ladies.
I am so looking forwards to it. 

To add a clear glaze I used a VersaMark ink pad and clear embossing powder.

I added these to the design ,
Placing the sentiment in the middle. 
Here is a closer look. 




I do hope you like it and most importantly that it makes you smile. 

Have a lovely day all. 
Make today count.


Much love and hugs 
Jo xxx
