Friday morning I decided that my stencils which were house in 3 A4 boxes could do with sorting out. In my cupboard I had some 6x6 scrapbooks that were unused, they looked ideal for the 6x6 stencils. after a productive morning filling 4 6x6 scrapbooks with the 6x6 stencils and a clarity stencils book with the clarity stencils I was inspired to get out the inks and have a play in the afternoon. Below is the result. I started with the flower stencil (sorry I've had this stencil so long I can't remember where it comes from) and some gesso which was splodged though the stencil onto some white card, this acts as resist for the inks over the top, which came next when the gesso was dried. Then I went back with the same colours and inked through the stencil. I chose colours that I would not normally reach for, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and worn lipstick Distress Inks. Then I used a stencil from Peerless Designs which again I've had for sometime but it was unused. I inked through the stencil with Archival black and used the word dream from another unused Peerless Designs set at the bottom. Finally I highlighted some of the black before matting it onto a 7x7 card base.
I'm going to enter thins into the challenge over at Stamping Sensations which this month is anything goes.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
