Use a Stencil at TIoT

 Our new challenge at Try it on Tuesday is Use a Stencil - a great way of adding interest to your cards..

I've used a mop up background and then used  White Gloss Embossing paste through a Wendy Vecchi stencil before stamping my Freesia image which was coloured with Distress inks and pencils.

The rest of the team have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details. 

Well, I was already for a catch up and then bang - Sciatica - can't put my foot down, can't sit, so my apologies for lack of visiting - again.

Spring at TioT

 Spring is the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and we would love to see your Spring themed projects.

I have used a gelli plate background with fresh spring colours and as there's quite a few daisies showing in the lawn, I decided that's what my TH wildflower die cuts would be, just colouring the centres and leaves.

The rest of the team have some gorgeous inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Things have been very quiet in the craft room, in fact this is my first actual make of the year and I've not done any visiting, but hopefully I'm on the mend and will be catching up with you (and real life) soon.

Take care and have a great day.
