Stenciling and a Christmas card

It's my turn to share at A2Z Scrapbooking.  Our theme for the month is to use a stencil on your project. 

I made a Christmas card using a stencil on the background.

I used a stencil from Stamp Giraffe that is a splatter on.  I used a Hero Arts Digital kit - Chalkboard Christmas to add the sentiment to the card before using the stencil.  I then used the Tuttifruity ink colour to stamp the Poinsettia and Lime Rickey for the leaves.  I used the matching dies to cut out the layers. 

And I also used a stencil in a different way... to make my own colouring book page

I used a Hero Arts stencil and a fine line pen to trace around it.  I then used Faber Castel pencils to colour in.   I will use it on a card at some stage.
