Stencil girl

Found a great american stencil maker via Facebook (Stencil Girl), lusted over all of the stencils but managed to stop at three for the first visit, they have lots of different artists creating them so there is an eclectic selection to choose from, below is my first card using one of them.  I tried to brayer through the stencil but just left a layer of ink on the actual stencil with little or nothing on the card below  perhaps a softer brayer would work, anyway decided to just brush the ink onto the paper through the mask and I think it worked, added a few water splashes and the job is done.

The great news is that you can now buy some of the stencils from Thats Crafty who have started to stock them and also Viva Las Vegas stamps which I also found on facebook from Sue Roddis, wonderful quirky stamps.  So well done to That's Crafty for shopping outside the box, and free P & P over £20.00 whats not to love.

 Decided to carry on with the brayer and inked up this stamp, for another quick and simple make.

Hope you are all enjoing the may bank Holiday and the sunshine .. mwah!

You have me to thank for That's Crafty stocking StencilGirl (bow down before Zod) :-) I have that Pam Carriker stencil too - love the beautiful watery feel you got with it.
