Always time for tea

Hello there

Today I'm sharing a card using several Giogiocraft stencils and Distress Oxide ink. 

I started with the macarons then masked them off to put the cup behind them. One I had stencilled the main shapes I spattered them with water to let the ink react and lift, leaving a bit of texture and added interest.

I added some grey Promarkers to give a bit of shadow and depth and masked off the images before adding some colourful spatter.

Mmm anyone else feeling a bit peckish?

Hope you have a good day. Thanks for stopping by xx

Just my type


A quick post today to share a card made with a Giogiocraft stencil and Derwent inktense pencils. I traced around the typewriter stencil and then built up the colours inside.

I shaved a little off the end of the pencils and diluted with water to get the ink for the splatters and finsihed it off with a text stamp from StampersAnonymous.

I enjoyed using the stencil this way so I might have an experiment with others to see if I can get the same effect. Watch this space!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day xx

I've been having a little play with some of the lovely stencils in my Giogiocraft advent calendar. First up is the little maneki-necko, beckoning cat, in the hope that 2021 brings us better fortune.

Difficult to get a decent photograph at this time of the year when there is so little daylight.

Thank you for stopping by. Hope the week brings you happiness and good fortune xxx

Start the year with a splash


Happy New Year! 

I have started the year off with a cheerful, fun card, using a Giogiocraft stencil, Cosmic Shimmer pixie powders and Inktense pencils.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by. I hope that 2021 brings you many blessings and an abundance of creative inspiration xxx
