"Hi….my name is Paula, and I started cardmaking in February 2004 as I wanted to make a special card for my aunt - I haven’t really looked back since. I love stamping, working with colour and the CAS (clean and simple) style."
"I was thrilled to have made the Top 3 in Mays Challenge and was delighted to have been asked to join in with this months Challenge of “Stencil It”. I began with an Ikea mirror, the first thing I did was used the Cargo stencil by Tim Holtz to stencil through some PaperArtsy Grunge Paste. Once the paste was dry, I used a grey paint to cover the whole frame, paste and all. I tried using some PaperArtsy Crackle Glaze next but it didn’t really work, not sure why though! My next paint was a PaperArtsy Fresco one called ‘Beach Hut’. I then stenciled the wording using Memento black ink (it just happened to be close to hand!) I then dry brushed white paint over top, then a little bit of grey.
Thank you so much for letting me take part in this months challenge and sharing my project with you all."
