Christmas is fast approaching!! Each year a group of my friends have a tradition that we send each other a gift at Christmas time. It has to be a Christmas decoration and we have set a money limit of $20. Over the years I have received some beautiful gifts and its turned into a really fun tradition!
When I saw Candy Lane I knew it was going to be perfect for one of my friends who is mad about the colour pink :) Some of the papers in the collection are quite bright, but others are more of a muted pastel, so theres huge variety to choose from. I chose to use the muted pink tones in the collection, with a little fussy cutting and some of the Noteworthy collection.
This season BoBunny also released some new items - stencils, pearlescents, ink pads and glitter paste. Ive used two of the stencils to make my background. From the Brocade set Ive used the dots, and from the Bliss set Ive used the small damask mask.
Theres a couple of things I love about the new stencils. They are stickable to your chosen surface, so the mask won't move around on you - perfect! - and there are more than one stencil in a kit, so for example the Bliss collection has 20 separate stencils in it that you can use individually! Great value for money :)
To create my background I have painted my canvas with gesso and used texture paste with my stencils, and randomly stamped my background. The title I have cut from my silhouette and used the Pink Punch ink pad to give it that subtle pink colour by using my fingers to mush it in - to tone the colour down a bit Ive used my fingers again to blend in some Sugar Pearlescents and finally gone around the edge of my letters with black pen that Ive blended with a baby wipe.
Thanks for popping by today and if you want to see what the BoBunny stencils are like you can see them here.
