Playing with stencils – Seaweed As mentioned yesterday, I also noticed that the dripping blood stencil could double as great seaweed and make a fab underwater scene, in fact I love the underwater scene created with this stencil I could cut a proper seaweed/sea bed stencil (which I may still do), but its always great to have a stencil that can be used for more than one purpose (and you certainly couldn’t use a proper sea bed one as dripping blood!) I wonder if this stencil could be used for any other scenes or things too? These backgrounds were only […]
Playing with stencils – Dripping Blood effect and Woodgrain! Good morning all, As mentioned yesterday, I said i would share my stencil experiments today First is wood grain, this is quite a big stencil, I think the effect was OK (although it looks more like a zebra!) but its not quite as i wanted! Added to that the stencil is very flimsy feeling, due to so many large cut out areas. So unfortunately although I will keep this one, the design will go on the ‘bin it’ pile and these won’t be created to sell. The next stencil is meant […]
Playing with Masks – Mountains and skies! Its a chilly but bright lunchtime here, how is it in your part of the world? I recently made some stencils & masks and thought i would share them with you. With a little example of them in use. I had great fun playing Here’s the first one, its a cloud mask. I used Tumbled Glass distress ink, along with a round blender tool and the cloud mask to create an easy and simple sky! Starting at the top and working downwards, just simply place the mask across your piece of card/paper and […]
Tuesday’s Tip! – Colouring Feathers I need to get more organised in sharing things with all you lovelies out there.

I’ve decided to […]

Love is in the air….. Well, i’m chasing my tail again lol. I was behind for Christmas after having to wait to get the new laser (Big Red) delivered in the summer and so after a mad panic and rush for Christmas, I had no chance to get any Valentines bits done! So although a bit late, I’ve finally managed to design a few Valentine cards, all very different. I’ve been sure to include some regular characters – The BFG and The Twits and some cute cards, a card for bird lovers and a card for those who adore piggies! […]
