Tea Break Craft Classes

I had planned a lazy Sunday today. I watched a couple of Eileen Godwin's youtube videos this morning which prompted me to head to my craft room for a bit of a play. The ironing will have to wait, who cares when there are interesting things to do.
Whilst the technique was fresh in my mind, I made two panels and mounted them on cards. I made two as I was pretty sure I would mess at least one of them up but I am quite pleased with both results.

The video is here if you want a watch, short enough to watch during a tea break:

Stencils used : Paperartsy - JOFY PS009 and Tim Holtz - Shatter
Stamp : bubbles from JOFY 09
Distress Inks : Picked Rasberry, Peacock Feathers and Wild Honey with Black Soot to finish
White pen, gold gel pen and sequins to embellish (note: those larger sequins are silver, they look black in the photo).

This was good fun to do and great practice for layering.
Thanks to Eileen for the inspiration today.


  1. These are both stunning cards, Julia. I have so few stencils, I will probably never make anything this lovely. But I really LOVE the way you used the stencils. Even the sequins held my attention. Really gorgeous entries you can truly be proud of.

  2. Stunning. Love the effect. Have a great week Julia.

  3. I watched that video only a few days ago! No creating like that for me at the moment....wrong type of supplies!

  4. These are really lovely - the white flower petals really pop against the bold colours. What a nice way to spend your Sunday!
