At Craft Club today we did glitter paste through stencils. It was the table I missed at their sister club the other week so I was well pleased. The glitter paste we used was from Glitz Craft and the colours were gorgeous.
The stencil I did first was a Christmas one - well I have to start sometime. I needed to add a bit of distress ink first to get the outline, then I glitter pasted the central parts of the trees. The reveal of the stencil was rather satisfying.
I then did an Art Nouveau stencil, which I cut in half and made up the pink card and had this rose left over so it might just make its way onto my June pages for 12 Months in View as the flower of the month is a rose.
I followed this by doing the Wild Flower stencil. After that I covered a few butterfly and dragonfly embellishments with the paste too. Time just flew by today so I gathered a few card blanks, patterned papers and ribbons so I could complete the cards at home.
I found I missed a few bits on the embellishments so I used distress inks to fill in and to edge them.
I was looking at the green dragonfly and realised that The Summer of Colour colour pallet this week was Citron Green & Turquoise so I just had to use one of them.
I have decided to make twinches for this year, it is amazing what you can fit on a twinchie.
Oh and one lady today thought I was slacking with my blog lately so I hope this is quick enough this time - LOL.
