Stencils and Masks

Stencils and Masks is the theme for the latest Craft-Room Challenge and it has been chosen by Esther.

 We are sponsored by Stamp Addicts who are giving the lucky random winner a £10 voucher to spend in their store.

For the main image I used a Sweet Poppy Stencil. I stencilled some coloured ink onto some white card and then spread some Dreamweaver translucent embossing paste over it. When the paste dried I coloured the card with distress ink and splashed some water over it. I matted this onto some orange card. I coloured the background with some distress ink and stencilled some butterflies. I added some wooden butterflies that I'd coloured with distress ink and embossed with some clear embossing powder.

The rest of the Design Team have made some lovely samples and they would love you all to visit the Craft-Room Challenge to take a look.
