Forever Friendship

Hello Bloggers,

Did you catch Paul's shows yesterday?  Such a wealth of knowledge and inspiration and a clever demonstrator.  I am in awe of the samples made by the Groovi team - I really must get into that, I have all the gear....!

Back to stamps and stencils for now though.  This card got shown yesterday, so I thought I would blog about it.

I used the stencil Seed Heads and  'Forever' and 'Friendship' from Word Chain 8
I started by attaching the stencil to the stencil card, then squished a few colours of distress ink on a glass mat and added a little spritz of water, then just sponged various colours of diluted distress ink through.  I used a natural sponge with an open texture, which gives quite a splodgy appearance.  I pressed quite hard to get into all the nooks and crannies..
Once dry, I cut out a piece I liked that fitted my card, then added extra ink round the edges and matted onto green card and tore down one side.
I added the same inks to a smaller piece of card to stamp the words on, then matted them separately.  Nice and easy!
Thanks very much for popping in, hope you enjoy the rest of your evening
