Next stop was the Sweet Poppy Stencils stand. You may know that a lot of their stencils are designed by Tracey Dutton of Lavinia Stamps- and many are larger versions of her rubber stamps.
I bought these three- I love the Butterfly Tree. Actually, I just thought I should have included a ruler in the picture so you know how big they are! Right, been and measured them, the cat stencil is 3 1/2" x 4 1/2", the two tree ones are just under 4 1/2", x 5 3/4".
The smashing people at the Sweet Poppy stencils stand kindly allowed me to take some photos of their samples- these are the images which sold me on the stencils I bought! The cat stencil is completed using Black glitter over the stencil paste, and the trees stencil has had Abalone leaf added.
Everyone on the stands that I asked if I could take pictures for later inspiration very kindly said yes, and I would like to say thanks to all of them, I really appreciated it. I will post some more pics of what I bought later in the week, and if I have any pics of the inspiration for my purchases, those as well.
