Life Is Good by Alison Hall


That's Crafty! have added some fabulous new stencils to their That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils range, and I've used two of them on a card for my nephew. That lovely Carabelle Studio gentleman made an appearance again!

Here's what I used...

That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils - Jewelled, Screwheads
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paint - Zucchini, Mermaid, South Pacific, Snowflake, Little Black Dress
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Remnant Rubs - Botanical, Life Quotes
White Card Blank - 6x6 inch
Brayer, Stencil Brush, Large Bubble Wrap, Scissors

Here's what I did...

1. I began by creating a background using the Gelli Plate, the blue and green Fresco paints, and making patterns with the bubble wrap.

2. I cut out a square of background, then stencilled the Jewelled design repeatedly across the middle using Snowflake Fresco. Leaving the stencil in place, I used black Archival ink to stamp the Prima Messy writing through the stencil. I then outlined the design with a fine black Sharpie.

3. I stamped the Man and Bird onto the background, then again onto white card, then cut him out and glued him over the image on the background. I stencilled some Screwheads in two corners with Little Black Dress Fresco, then added the Remnant Rubs bird and words.

4. To finish, I matted my design onto black card, then adhered it to a square white card.

Hope you have a creative day!
