Good Morning all. Today is the second of June and the heading of my blog indicates that it's summer.......well not here in Kent !!!!!. The weather yesterday and today is dreadful......Cold, windy and wet..... this is not Summer to me .....hope it's better where you are today.
Now todays card is something a little different from me and a little bit out of my comfort zone. I have tried stencilling before using paste, and to be quite honest, not very good. So I have not attempted very often. However, I was watching C&C the other day and "sweet poppy stencils" were on. A lovely lady demonstrating and giving great tips (which is what you want to see on a crafting channel).
She suggested when using a metal stencil, to have a magnetic sheet behind, so that the stencil lays as flat as possible, making It harder for the paste to slip behind and so spoiling the effect.
She also sprinkled some glitter onto the paste, whilst wet, and heated it from behind using a heat gun. The paste begins to bubble and once dry gives a good effect.............
...............so here is my attempt.
As you can see the paste is "bumpy looking".
