Hello crafters, Kirsten here with a confession.
I’ve been so busy making samples for Friday’s classes that I completely forgot about today’s blog post. So I had a search through the stencil samples I made & found this one. Speedy blog post coming up……….
I dry embossed the Imagination Crafts Bay Leaf stencil with my Big Shot machine. When doing this always remember to put your chosen card/paper on the cutting plate first, NOT the stencil. Layer it the other way round & you will cut the stencil & yes, I speak from experience unfortunately.
I replaced the stencil, offsetting it slightly & applied Adirondack inks through it onto the card. I used Lettuce, Oregano, Stream & Pool.
I stamped the Artemio dragonfly with Black Archival on to the card & again onto acetate. I coloured the acetate on the reverse with alcohol inks & cut out the wings, which I glued to the card.
I added a scribbled border, tiny amount of Blue Sapphire Sparkle Medium & a white organza ribbon.
That’s it, quick & easy.
We’re in the final few days of the current blog challenge, it ends on Saturday night. We’ve had lots of lovely entries so far but there’s always room for more, so if you’ve been thinking about entering, now’s the time.
I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at the classes on Friday & I shall be back here on Sunday with a new challenge.
Until then, happy crafting.
