Just playin….

Hi, Carol with you today….Have you seen the latest Tando arrivals in the shop? the mini stencils are just great for all sized projects and at a great price too, today I've used mine to make this card and matching tag…

I started off with a 6"x6" card blank and masked off the edges using tape.  I then added tumbled glass distress ink using a distressing tool blending in walnut stain distress ink to the edges…. Using the mini mask, brick wall, and broken china distress ink I added a pattern at the bottom of the card - if you start in the middle and slide your stencil across matching up the bricks and then ink, this will give you a continuous pattern… using tumbled glass ink I added stencilling using distressed sequins mask and mini flourish and then stamped the spiky flowers from paperartsy set EDY14.  I added some mini splats to the wall using the walnut stain DI.  Using black ink I stamped the chevron along the wall and the other flowers from plate EDY14.  To colour these in I mixed Ranger multi-medium matte with pixie powders in purple violet and golden mint and painted the images using a paint brush.  To add more bling to my flowers I added a very small covering of stickles - in stardust.  To finish off the card I added some washi tape and a handcut sentiment banner.

the tag was made in the same way:-
