playing with aallandcreate

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are well! I started work yesterday as an invigilator at the school across the road from me - I had 3 and 3/4 hours looking after students prior to their french GCSE orals. I think I was more nervous than they were! I'm back in again today for 2 hours training! A bit back to front but hey ho!

I have been very tempted by the new release at allandcreate and have been playing with a new tracy evans stamp and a kassa stencil....

The sentiment is from chocolate baroque but the rest is alland create. I did the background using pixie powders then stamped the image. I coloured parts of the image with the pixie powders too and then used distress inks through the kassa stencils.

Here's a close up of the stamped area....

I hope you have a great day!

Big hugs
