New stencil, an older stamp set ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I’ve been playing with my Spectrum Aqua pens, Colorista and Derwent pencils again, this time with a stencil lol, and here is the end result …
I have a few more Christmas cards to finish but it was nice to take a break from them
and okay to post!
I love what I can do with a stencil now!

I was a little naughty over the weekend playing with a new stencil when I was supposed to be working on Christmas and DT cards, oh well I do get a bit desperate to play with new stuff when I shouldn’t be lol! I used my lovely Spectrum Aqua pens to draw the layout of the tulip heads before I added the stems and leaves. I applied several layers of watercolour drying the card thoroughly in between each layer. Once dry I went back in and added some more shadow and definition to the leaves and stems. Then I stamped the sentiment and I felt it needed a little more so I grabbed a purchased die cut flower and then I die cut a rolled flower and added that and I was happy lol!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
