 Hello everyone,

All tummies in good shape now and had our family dinner on Friday night and it went down a treat.. 

So back to share a fun project and my stencilling is improving..gently does it..

I'm always so heavy handed and want things done quick, so my stencilling in the past suffered for it, modelling paste oozed everywhere and ink was just yuk!..but slow and steady and gentle now, and my leaves through this delicate stencil came out pretty good, even added some shading through the stencil with darker ink..

Background done and these die cut leaves matched so well..

So cut plenty of them with this gorgeous olive green cardstock from Hero Arts, so thick and yummy..

Cut and coloured, just the centers, some daisies in several different sizes..

And on they went all over the place..leaves on the frame with a small daisy and then just kept going..
 as you do..

A simple Birthday stamp used, a wooden stamp and one of my favourites..

Not too much dimension,just enough..

And a close up of the daisies,  I love doing those centers on them, just dots of markers in browns..

And all done..

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow..
