Hi Hollowers!

Welcome back to another fun tutorial.  You all know I love something a little bit different and this innovation form Concord and 9th doesn’t disappoint; they seem to be such an innovative company with their turn about stamps (you can see a video here) and now this new line.  Here is a picture of all the co-ordinating products…

The paper pack has 8 different designs (4 fill in pages and co-ordinating patterns on the reverse); you can in the picture above that the flowers are empty; this is so that you can stencil in the flowers in completely custom colors and ways.  The co-ordinating stencils are two step so that you can add in different tones, here’s how they layer up…

I think it’s such a fab idea. I decided my first experiment would be using the abandoned coral distress inks; I used both the original and the oxide inks; I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but I’m really pleased with the results…

These were actually part of last months release, I have been so excited to use them but with everything going on I just didn’t get to them, but this weekend we were playing with our new sound system and camera; I decided we would create together on camera and explore how to use them! So let’s take a look!

Mr HH also took this fab picture with the barbers crush, you can see a tutorial and comparison with clarity brushes here.  I think they are so great to work with and so pretty too, it’s win win!! Of course, as always you are fine to share, pin or save any of our images for your future reference.  I have no problem with you case-ing my ideas either, just please link back or tag us, we love to give some crafty love out too 🙂
