Thanks for popping in.
What a lovely sunny day it is!
I’m waiting till it cools down before I pack the caravan ready for our road trip tomorrow.
Thought I’d have a little inky session, a little down time,
after all the excitement at the Open Days.
How about using one of those fab new stencils which Mel designed? There are 5 in the set.
You can get them individually, but they are all so lovely, it will be tricky to choose!
5 for the price of 4
Here’s something very handy if you are into your stencils.
It’s called Magnet-Kleber (German, pronounced Magnate Clayber)
Kleber = adhesive.
Apply it very lightly to the back of stencils, especially fine detailed ones, like this one.
Let it dry on the stencil and then position it where you want to use it. It will hold the stencil in place beautifully, on all surfaces.
You can use the stencil over and over again, and the sticky will stick.
I used a blending sponge to apply the adhesive to the stencil.
While it’s drying, let’s get the card ready. Clarity Stencil card is great, not least because it’s the same size as the 7×7 stencils.
Before you add any other colours, position the stencil on the card, sticky side down.
You will notice how it seals beautifully. Press it down well.
Add Wild Bilberry now. GREAT COLOUR!
Add another blue – Ocean Reef. Brush it in from the sides.
Place a piece of kitchen paper over the piece and spritz with water.
Roll a brayer over the paper towel to help it connect with the card.
Cor. Don’t you wish you’d used a piece of copy paper….
Remove the stencil
If you’ve got some sticky residue on the card,
gently roll it off with your finger.
Add a great arty message.
I love this stamp.
That’s it. Very simple, very quick.
And after a rather frustrating little fashion show this morning, trying on last year’s shorts and summer dresses,
( which was anything BUT simple, quick or relaxing ).
Ah well. There are sure to be some pretty astounding sights at Glastonbury, so nobody’s going to notice my derriere – that’s for sure !!!
I remember last year was pretty extreme…
I mean – why do I worry ?????
|Mud? What mud?|
I am sooooo excited.
The weather looks to be magnificent, and just the fact that the ground is really dry before 200,000 invade the area,
we are set to have a much more pleasant time than last year.
My oh my.
We all deserved a bloody medal after that mentally muddy madness!
|The famous £100 wellies. BEST investment ever!|
So come on. Let’s have a caption for this one:
She says, He says….
Got to go.
Time to pack the caravan….
Love & hugs.
