Sweet Poppy Stencils, Distress inks, and Promarkers.

Hi there,

I was very lucky recently, to be asked by the 
lovely Lucy of Sweet Poppy Stencils
to join her fabulous Design Team, what an honour.

So armed with a couple of super stencils, some Translucent paste, microbeads, Distress inks, and Promarkers I had a little play.

The stencils I used were, Dress 8 - Charlotte and Teardrop Background.
I sponged Distress ink through the Teardrop background, straight onto a masked 8"x 8" card blank, and then added some faux stitching.

 On another piece of card, I traced through the Dress stencil with a black pen, took the stencil away and coloured using Promarkers. I then popped the stencil back on. smoothed Translucent paste through, removed the stencil carefully, poured over the Microbeads, and put aside to dry.

I matted and layered up the Dress, added some ribbon and a sentiment.

I do hope you like my first DT project for Sweet Poppy.

Thank you so much for visiting, and for the fab comments.

Till next time,
Hugs, Pauline xxxx
