Stags Head

Morning my crating friends and a very Happy Good Friday to you all, I hope you are all well and have an enjoyable Easter weekend ahead. Now don't get sick eating all them Chocolate  eggs lol!

Recently I have got back into stamping and stenciling, as you may have noticed lol! Today's post is a stencil I bought last year of a Stags head, I love the detail on this one. Some of you may remember the Christmas card I did with him last year which can be viewed HERE.

I wanted to show off the beautiful filigree parts of the stencil so I decided to mix some modelling paste with some acrylic paint to make the Brown and spread this over the stencil onto some White card. I was quite pleased with how it turned out as I was not sure I would catch every bit of detail, the second image below just about shows the depth of the paste.

Once dry I rubbed the chisel end of a Promarker pen around the edges then matted it onto some 'Leather Look' Cream card and Pearlescent Brown card. I was going to keep it to this size but then decided to add it as a topper on a larger card to make it stand out more.

Adding the sentiment at the bottom completed the card.

Items Used:

Sweet Poppy Stencil Stags Head
Printed Heaven Leather Look Cream card
Crafters Companion Pearlescent card Brown
Soho Creations Hammered Brilliant White Card
Maimer Modelling Paste
