Fun with Stencils . . .

Good Morning All!
Today I'm playing in the new challenge at Classy Cards n Such 
and the theme is to use a STENCIL on your creation. 
Believe it or not, I had been wanting to give stencils a try and had just purchased a couple of them at the Classy Cards n Such Store and received a 10% discount by using friend and DT member at CCNS Diane's (Nellie's Nest) discount code 
(you can use it too ... DIANE-10). 

My next purchase will be that paste stuff you can use with stencils ... but for today I've simply used INK and a SPONGE and LOVE the outcome!

This technique was so easy and you can be sure you'll be seeing more creations using this stencil and the other stencils I've purchased being used for backgrounds!
All products used will be listed below my name at the end of this post.

Other challenges:
Bunny Zoe's January challenge - Stitching (I did Faux Doodle Stitching)
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes

Do you own a stencil?
Plastic or metal ... it qualifies!
Why not come join in this challenge fun!

I need to get some birthday cards ready to mail ... I'd better get busy!
Thank so much for stopping by and I hope you 
have found inspiration in my creation!

Till next time and as always . . .
