Good afternoon all, I hope your day is going well. 
We have rain here again today, 
so I had another wet walk to the Post Office. 
Today I was posting some more samples to HOCHANDA. 
These are for the next One Day Special shows which are this Friday and Saturday. 

There are some new stencils on the shows, and 
here is one of my samples using the butterfly one. 

I just wanted to show the detail of this stencil, and I wanted to do something a bit different. 
After all that is our job on the dt, 
and as you know I do love using stencils. 

It is so nice to use black card just for a change. 

I applied the VersaMark ink through the stencil using a little sponge. 
( use an elastic band to create your own applicator ) 

Next I added some mica powder , I used some Luscious powders. 

Just look at those colours. 

I also added a sentiment. 
I gave the powder a few minutes to bind, then a gently wiped the area with a tissue. 
Look at the detail. 

As my sample is going to be handled quite a lot I fixed the powders using a spray fixative. 

I am sure you all have some mica powders in your stash,,,
Why not get them out and have a play..

I’m off now, 
Got the boys coming to play for a few hours. 

Take care all 
Pop back soon

Love and hugs
