Stencil play time

Good morning everybody and thank you for joining me today.
How are you feeling, ? and how is the weather with you ? 
Luckily I managed to walk Eric today before it began to rain. 

Have you been watch the ODS on HOCHANDA, with Leonie. 
She has been show casing some fabulous new dies and stencils. 

I must admit I adore the stencils, and 
we are using them at our next Cumbria workshop.

This is one of my samples. 

I had a great time creating it. 
I tried to make it look as though the numbers were hanging from the stencil

Here is how I created it 

I started with blending some ink through the stencil. 

This was the result. 

And this was the clean up with the stencil 

Then it was playtime, with charcoal pencils 

Look , what a difference that makes. 

Some finishing off touches, 
Adding some ink splats
Adding the dies, plus the numbers.
I am such a big kid, I loved hanging the numbers 
Adding the squiggle corners 

And finally some butterflies from an exclusive Tracy Evans stamp set (I adore these ) 

I do hope you like it. 

Workshops are back in full swing now with Hazel Grove tomorrow. 
So looking forwards to catching up with everyone. 

I had better get on, card to cut. 

Take care all 
Thanks for everything 
Love and hugs
