Adventures with Stencils

Last month, the Technique Junkies newsletter had a few tutorials for working with stencils. I have quite a few Brass Stencils and I really enjoy trying new things. Here are a couple of cards I created with my stencils.


This stencil is by Dreamweaver and the Paper is from Paper Temptress.  I just love that it came out because these are so many curves and notches in the design !
Challenges:
One Stitch at a time-old stash, new stash (new stencil and punch, paper has been in my stash.....)
Stamp With Dragon-Fantasy



This stencil is from ACD and the sentiment is from Firecracker Designs by Pamela.  The SU DSP has a very similar design.
Challenges:
Stampin Sisters in Christ-White with a splash of Red
Corrosive Challenge-Red and White
Christmas Card Challenge-Monochromatic


Thanks for stopping by! Shelly
