CYS August- stencils

Our Hostess for CYS (Challenge Your Stash), a monthly challenge at,  is Kelly.  She challenged us to use stencils.  Oh, I have a few of those (large drawer full).....LOL

 I made a background using distress inks, then added flicks of water to watermark. Next, I spritzed the stencil, and laid it on top of the background, then lifted it up, and a watermark of the stencil is on the background.
  When I first had a Scan N Cut, I cut out oddles and oddles of images, which reside in a baggie.....  I am doing some sorting today and came across the baggie and took out this vase (which I cut about 10 of) and colored it up and added it to the card.  I used the Splitcoaststampers Sketch challenge for the card as well.

You can find us at Your Stash.  Even though the challenge is in a 'Closed' area, it IS open for new members.  We are using supplies in our stash that are 'unused' for a while!!!
