'Stencil It' .......

....is the new theme for the month of July over at the Country View Crafts Challenge blog. I've gone for a masculine card for my first DT sample piece.......and yes I got the Time Travellers stamp set out again!! Can't help it love this set, lol!
Right so a quick how it was made.... first covered a bit of paper with 'Old Paper' distress ink and splashed some water on for a faux bleached effect
Then I got the Doodle Squares mask and randomly applied a bit of Brushed Corduroy distress ink through it, then I laid the Steampunk mask down and applied Pumice Stone making sure I didn't extend the colour to far into the middle of the square...
I stamped one of the figures from the Time Travellers set and cut him out, then lightly brushed him with a bit of Old Paper distress ink.  When I laid him in position though I didn't like the way he was going to look stuck on.....
.....so I left him in position replaced the Steampunk mask and blended a little Pumice Stone distress ink over the bottom corner  
I liked that much more! So glued him in place added a little more colour using my trusty alcohol pens (mixture of Promarkers and Spectrums) and then mounted it up and attached to a blank card.
Make sure you pop over to Country View Challenges and join in the fun.......there's also the possibility of winning a £20 voucher or maybe getting the chance to guest on the Challenge blog......so what you waiting for......we'd love to see you :)
