Week 272 - Use a Stencil or Mask

Hello Crafters,

Well, another week under our belts and only one week until we go on our holidays!!!
Not that I am really looking forward to it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol x
That is a week away so back to the business in hand today! as it is Saturday it is time for another Allsorts Challenge post and this week we have been asked to design a project using a stencil or a mask.
This is the card that I have chosen to show you ~

 This is a card that I made for my Dad's birthday last week. He collects pocket watches so it was perfect for him. (I really should have put a chain coming from the top of the watch but didn't have one! that would have finished it off nicely)
The stencil that I have used is a Sweet Poppy and I have used the gold paste through the stencil to get the definition.  The stencil comes in 2 parts so you can put the clock face on in a different medium so I used Pinflair Buff-it in Slate colour.  I used an embossing folder on the background and coloured it with distress inks and the buff it to match in with the watch. The background papers were from my stash and the card candy finished the edges off.
I hope that this has inspired you to have a go at the Challenge - the design team have been busy again this week so pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to have a look.
Take care and enjoy a lovely week,
Bye for now,
Jo x


  1. Hi Jo now this card is just great which goes without saying as it comes from LETS CREATE . Hope you and Mark have a great holiday, a well deserved rest for you both. Hope to see you soon

  2. So effective Jo. I have a watch type embossing folder from X Cut which looks as though this might be the same and find it very useful. Hope you have a nice relaxing holiday, best wishes Jackie

  3. Wow, I love all the metallic textures, I bet your Dad loved it too!! Such a great card :)
