Stencilling

Hi everyone, I'm just popping by today with a very quick make. I've a few stencils tucked away in the cupboard but I'm very guilty of not giving them the love they deserve...... so I decided to put that right and use a couple for this card. I'm actually pretty pleased with the result and it also has Hubby's approval - and it's nice and flat for posting. The flowers are much brighter in real life than they look here - it's pretty dull today and I just couldn't get a decent photo.


I made this for the following challenges ~

Tuesday Throwdown challenge 'stencilling'

Simon Says Monday challenge 'use stencils'

Time Out challenge 'photo inspiration'


Country View challenge 'opposites' colours + black border

Allsorts challenge 'happy 10th birthday'



Thanks for popping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend

Your stencil looks lovely. Guilty here as well. I have several lovely stencils but never think to use them. Dull wet and miserable day here too. Hugs Mrs A.

What a super QACAS card, Andrea! I have that stencil, so thank you for the inspiration! How is your cold? I hope you're better. I'm sorry I've been away so long. I enjoyed scrolling back through all your lovely creations I've missed (go you for all the mojo!). I especially loved the frame you made as a keepsake for that precious photo of Asher at the aquarium!! Hugs, Darnell
