I fell in love with a Sweet Poppy Stencil called "Oriental Cherry Blossom" so had to order it!. I came back from a few days away in the caravan and my order had been delivered, so as soon as the unpacking was done and the washing machine was on, I wasted no time in having a play.
I used a small Brusho paint background I had in my stash. Round the edges of the paint splatters I used another Sweet Poppy stencil called "Plaid Back Plate SP6-122" with two shades of Distress Inks: Squeezed Lemonade and Ripe Persimmon" this filled in the white areas.
I then lay the Sweet Poppu "Oriental Cherry Blossom" stencil down over the background and using a metal spreader with the Sweet Poppu "Glossy Red Stencil Paste" filled in the areas of the stencil. I then set it aside for an hour or two.
Once dry, I noticed that some of the paste had oozed under the stencil. I used a white gel pen to fill in the excess red areas. I used a white and a black Posca Pen to add splatters.
Finally, I used a Lawn Fawn "Hello" sentiment from their "Simply Sentiments" stamp set, stamped in Verafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.
