Stencil it!!!

Hi Folks,
Today we are using stencils at Stampotique, I have made a journal with Eileen Hull's designed die cut
 Front and back
The closure is painted in Pebeo Fantasy Moon and inside is Mokiwea
 And I made a card stencilling the fun enormous balls that these cuties are balancing on, 'it's a party'

 I grafted Jillian's head on to Dance Party Break Up and of course Twinkie just had to join in all the fun. The balls have been glazed and are glistening in the afternoon sunshine.
For the Journal I used two different stencils from Tim Holtz, Flourish and Dot Fade this was over the top of Crafter's Workshop Basics circles and I used texture paste to get the relief. Andy Skinner's technique for rust and stencilled a heart on the back.
Thank you for stopping by, hugs Gay xx 
p.s
It made me giggle, Hubby isn't into cards and gets them stuck under his nose for approval quite frequently, poor chap, anyway I was working on the journal and a little voice from behind me piped up
" You could sell that"
Well, you could have knocked me down with a feather! Praise indeed! Now I'll need to get cracking and batch make, LOL Don't worry I'm not into that either but I was chuffed that he liked it :D Cheers everyone xx

For the Boys!!!

Hello again,
I'm back , this time with something for the men in our lives! The theme this fortnight at Stampotique is all about the chaps. You may or may not know but I'm useless when it comes to creating masculine cards so bear with me
 The next card is more generic really and could be considered a unisex  card,

Thanks for dropping by, great to see you 😁Hugs Gay xx
I used
Distress Oxide inks on both, loved playing with these!
First card;
Arnold
Alpha Background 
stamped onto card and cut out for the wording
Second card;
Towering Gifts
