Ellie the Hairdresser

Morning-I would like to welcome my new follower Babs- and we have a new challenge at A Inky Mess sponsored by Papernest Dolls.I used the image "Hairdresser Ellie"-quite apt as my grandaughter Ellie(10yrs) is brilliant at doing hair lol,I coloured the image with promarkers and propped on the tag with 3-D foam pads,the paper clip reminded me of hair clips so added that touching the hair.I made the background by putting distress inks on craft mat and spritzing with water,then pressed the stencil onto ink and patted onto card instead of putting ink through stencil-love this technique and only used a small tag sized piece so have more to use,I originally thought the lines could look like heat waves off the hair dryer,but cut the tag top the wrong side never realised till I posted pic!!!also struck me it would have looked better decoupaged too aarrggg leson learnt- whether it will be remembered is another matter lol.

Stamps and Stencils

Morning and I have four DT posts today-this is the last one which is for the midway inspiration for the ATG challenge at Love to Craft .I stamped the Agapanthus Cluster from Stampendous in distress ink sprayed with water before stamping,the background card I made with a stencil BUT instead of inking through a brick stencil, I put distress ink on craft mat and sparayed with water then laid the stencil on this then patted down onto card so you get the negative part really then I stamped the sentiment from Visible Image onto an offcut,distress inked round all the edges and done.
