Welcome to the Mad House by Helen Chilton


For my post this week I've used some of the new Katzelkraft stamps on the website:

I couldn't resist them when I saw them - they just made me laugh.
All piled up, the images are just the right size for a tag. I started with some white paint, some green, some blue and a brayer:

Then came the stencilling. I grabbed a handful of That's Crafty! stencils and just went for it!

First using yellow which turned green on the blue, then adding green and blue stencilling on top:

After that it was a case of adding white or black for a bit of a contrast and I went for the black texture paste. I've used a tiny design here as I didn't want it to be too 'blocky' - is that a word?

Then I just stamped and coloured the images - you can easily carry on using paints but I chose the crayons as they're very quick and easy - just blend with your fingers.

I then added some of the pink to the background as well just to tie it all in:
