A simple stencil

Good morning to you!

I hope your Sunday is going well.  I am relaxing a bit after having done the Claritystampers East workshop yesterday.  It was a lovely day with lots of lovely ladies, but I will post more about that after next Sunday when I've done the workshop at Great Blakenham too.

Don't forget that Paul Church is on Hochanda next Sunday with three Clarity shows - obviously I can't give too much away, but let's just say there will be colour bursting going on!

My sample today is done with one of the fab Festive Stencil Set apertures and the words from the Christmas Word Chains 13 and 14

I attached the stencil to my card then added shades of yellow by brushing and sponging ink through the aperture. I used a black pen to trace round the edge of the image too
I wanted to add the lines across the centre of the image, so I found a part of the stencil which had the right curve and used that to draw two lines across.
I used a zentangle pattern to fill in the lines

To finish off, I drew two squares round the edge of the card and used the same pattern to fill in.

Stamp the lovely Christmas greeting in place and add a bit of yellow round the edges, then mat and layer.

I added a touch of glitter glue round the base of the bell.
Thank you for visiting
Love Janet xx
