Stencils for Frilly and Funkie - Festive ICAD's (Part Two)

Hi everyone. Back to give your the second instalment of my close ups from the Frilly and Funkie Friday Focus. If you missed Part One head over HERE. Just two left, and here's the first.

I had fun with Picket Fence through a Dyan Reaveley stencil here; it may not have a Christmas theme but once inked over it reminded me of Nordic sweater patterns. Then I reached for a set of small stencils that came as a freebie with a craft magazine a couple of years ago. 

By swiping white texture paste through it and then applying Distress Paint I got something that looked just like modelled snow. Using Distress Stickles worked well for adding his essential finishing touches. A 'reverse banner' with different materials enhanced the kraft feel.

And so to the last tag, probably my favourite of them all.

Mixing the embossing paste with Distress Paint (in this case Fired Brick) and a touch of alcohol ink (Red Pepper) gave an instant brick wall background. Add some Picket Fence Distress Stain when dry and you get a weathered brick wall.

Linda has the most beautiful Venise lace in stock and this larger background piece was given a graduated colour using Peeled Paint and Bundled Sage. Then even more fun was had by stencilling onto a crinoline fussy cut boot shape with Watering Can Archival Ink and edging it with Distress Ink.

So that's it for this batch of ICAD's. I have more in progress for Astrid's swap and will definitely be creating some more for use as card toppers over the coming couple of months. As I mentioned yesterday, there is an extra 15% discount on Wendy Vecchi and Dyan Reaveley stencils at The Funkie Junkie Boutique this week so it would be a great time to stock up.

I'll be back tomorrow with my latest Frilly and Funkie DT project so hopefully I'll be seeing you over at the challenge blog for that. In the meantime take care of yourselves. Hugs, Jenny x
