Good afternoon all, 
I hope your day is going well. 
I know a couple of you are struggling at the moment, 
So I am sending a big 
Group Hug. 

I am just popping in to share a wonderful technique with you. 
As you know I love using stencils, and I am 
always looking at different ways of using them. 

Here is one..I hope you like it. 

This is using one of the new Aall & Create stencils, Elegance by Olga. 

Here is how I used it. 

I started off with a canvas, I added some paint, and let it dry .

Next I used the stencil and added some grunge paste. 

Once I had removed the stencil, I then added some embossing powder. 
I used a detailed gold. 

I then left this overnight to allow the GP to dry completely. 

Then the magic happens, as you use the heat tool. Look. 

I just adore the result, and the texture too, 

I made some embellishments, added them 

Plus some white paint, and attached it to some black card. 

I was so happy with the results, 
I hope you like it too. 

As the sentiment says, 
Best Wishes, Today ,  Tomorrow and Always. 

Take care all
Have a lovely weekend

Love and hugs 
Jo xxxx
