Stencil Time

One of my goals this year is to enter every month's challenge at A2Z Scrapbooking.  I like this challenge blog as it uses my favourite Hero Arts goodies and there is always lots of inspiration...

So this month's challenge is STENCILS... I have a couple of Hero Arts Stencils and yesterday had fun just playing....

I laid the stencil onto some card and used Fireworks Lulu Lavender and Grape Jelly glimmer mists and my homemade gold mist.  A little found it's way under the stencil, but hey, I liked the look I achieved so just went with it.  Add a stripe of patterned purple paper and some grey strips and the Hero Arts sentiment.  Add a single large gem to the centre and all done... Nice and CAS.

Have added now to this to the following challenges:
A2Z Scrapbooking ~ Stencils
Simon Says Stamp (Wednesday challenge) ~Happy Birthday
