I'm late,I'm late ...

Spring is in the air BUT it feels a little far away yet. So I had a little fun with this atc. My spring bunny happens to be from Alice in Wonderland. Its Stencil month at Altered Pages. I had fun with mine. 




I began by choosing a Tim Holtz brick stencil and some home made texture paste. Made from a mix of School glue (PVA in UK ) talcum powder and white paint.


I used a tool to smooth on the paste over the stencil and then left to dry overnight. I painted over with a coat of pale yellow acrylic paint and dried with heat gun. 

When dry I chose Vintage Photo distress ink and using an applicator I sponged over the bricks in a random way so it varied the coverage. 

I cut the card to fit over an atc size card and glued down, 


I chose some flowers,charms etc from my stash and adhered. Then added the text using my Dymo labeller. I was pleased with the results it was a lot of fun.
