Stencil DIY

Before i begin please can i say that finish card is only a mock and quickly done ( also not stuck down ) as i do take my time when crafting but wanted to see if my theory would work …..

After seeing so many gorgeous cards being made with MTF Circle Burst I decided to track this down to order one.  This proved unsuccessful as the postage was so expensive to be shipped to England from MTF Stamps plus nowhere here seems to sell these ( looked on Ebay, Amazon, Hobbycraft, Google etc )

So my last resort was to purchase a Polka Dot stencil and see if I could adapt it whilst awaiting for shipping from Hong Kong ( yes again item  unavailable here but cheaper from HK but a bit of a wait ) In mean time I did find mini stencils which were cute from Creative Expressions via ebay

I then got a 6×6 & 8×8 blank card and drew circle in middle, Cut this out and hey presto on my way to creating a circle burst card.

So next stage was to place stencil on card ( attach tape to stop it moving which i will do when i do this properly with more time and no rushing ) then place my Circle cut out over top

Then applied some Distress Ink – I used Mermaid Lagoon
This was my finished ROUGH design whilst awaiting a slightly larger ( and easier ) polka dot / circle stencil which i hope will be easier than the mini one

The things we have to go through here in England when we have limited resources and that is why I am so envious off all you stampers / crafters overseas as you have such lovely products and much much more choice but keep up the fab work as love looking at them all
