Mixed Media World - Stencils



Hello everyone,


Time for another challenge over at Mixed Media World, this time picked by our very lovely Georgie C and the theme is a fab one: STENCILS.


To add further to the excitement, I'm so happy to announce we have the most wonderful and generous sponsor for this challenge





For the lucky winner, the prize is 10 ATC sized stencils.........WOW!!


It's exciting times over at  Thats Crafty! as Laura (the lovely shop owner) has just produced their own range of ATC sized stencils and as I'm extremely lucky (along with Deborah and Amanda) to be on the shop DT, we got some to try out and all I can say is I fell in love with them straight away!


So, for my MMW creation, I've used a lot of Thats Crafty! stencils especially the 'bubbles' one, this is going to be a big favourite with everyone.



This is all Thats Crafty! Dinky stencils apart from the tree.

The finished creation.....how I LOVE stencils!
