I have been doing so many Marvel letters lately I needed a change.
A while ago I bought some Americana vintage stencils....I got them to use on my bedroom furniture when I eventually get around to revamping them...it will be a big job & finding the time to do it all needs to be planned with military precision.
Anyway.....I thought I would have a play & do a few different things with them.
This is the canvas....I used the Americana chalky finish paint (which I love!), on the background.
I made it streaky & patchy to get a distressed feel & stenciled in a soft cream.
I am doing a clock & a few other bits but thought I would share this with you today It has been a while since I posted anything.
No clue who I am giving this to lol...whoever has a red room!

With everything else I have to get done making another card put my brain in shutdown.
I have had a moan before about my card making skills ( I always think they look pants),so you can imagine my despair when I sat down to make a 1st birthday card.
After an hour at looking at the papers & trying different compositions I gave up & decided to go with a box card.
It needed to be special so I made it A4 size.
No more cards for a while now....phew!
