We Go Together

Hi Friends and Crafters, Just read the blog title and started singing the song, I am sure you know the one I mean. Thank you for stopping by, it's great to have some company. Today I am going to share a card made with the Little Bird stencils that were launched at the weekend on Hochanda. I do hope you got to see the shows, if you missed them or want to watch them again, you can see them on rewind via the Hochanda website.

You will Need:
Clarity Little Bird Stencil
'We Go Together' Clarity Stamp
Daler & Rowney System 3 Black
Daler & Rowney System 3 Titanium White
Ultra Marine
Masking Tape
Egg Box
Gelli Plate
White or Cream Pearlescent card
Black Card
White Card
Collall Tacky Glue

Step 1: Using, the Brayer and Gelli plate, use the System 3 and the Ultra Marine to create a background piece. The Egg box, gives some lovely extra texture to this and looks a little flowery which goes really well with this stencil.Using the pearl card adds a lovely shimmer. Leave to dry thoroughly.

Step 2: Mask off the part of the stencil you don't want.

Step 3: Ink up the reverse of the stencil with Versafine Black Ink and run through your machine. You might need to repeat this step to build up the ink. Trim to size and mount on to black card.

Step 4: Stamp your sentiment onto your white layer and add your topper.

Step 5: Layer a piece of black card onto your base card. Then to finish add your finished topper.

Here is the finished card:

  1. Beautiful and elegant card. Love the colours and the effect the gelli plate gives. I don't have one of these,yes it would be nice but there is,as ever so many things I would like I need to be a millionaire!
    Thank you for sharing Nicola x

  2. I know Nicola, there are so many wonderful things to try, I think the Gelli Plate is great value really, although it's a lot in one go, but you can save so much on backing paper, it pays for itself very quickly, very addictive though.Thank you ever so much for your comment.xx

  3. A fab design. Thanks Nick x
