December Stencil Hop Day 1



Hi All, welcome to Day 1 of the ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop where we're celebrating all things stencil.

Here is my project ...


I was working with the Some Birds ARTplorations Stencil and a sentiment from True North to create this CAS card. I sponged my background using Tempting Turquoise, Concord Crush inks and a small punched circle as mask on a pieced rectangle die cut. I then added the birds and my sentiment in the darker Concord Crush and layered on my linen effect base card.

For oodles of inspiration check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here.

As with any blog hop simply leaving a comment on participating blogs can win you a prize, you can find all the links here. Commenting closes on Sunday 13th December and the winner will be announced on Tuesday 15th December.

Hold on, that's not all ... there is also a Stencil Linky Party running alongside the hop increasing your chances of winning a prize. It's all explained in the details below ...

*****
Prizes:

FIVE (5) winners will receive their choice of ARTplorations stencil (standard size - 5x7). Winners will be randomly drawn from all comments left on the designers' blogs.
ONE (1) winner will receive a $15 gift certificate OR her choice of 2 ARTplorations stencils (standard size - 5x7). Winners will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog.

Extra prizes for those who participate in the Flash Stencil Project Linky Party and link up by December 13:

TWO (2) winners whose projects feature stencils (any brand) will each receive their choice of one (1) ARTplorations stencil (standard size - 5x7)
ONE (1) winner whose project features an ARTplorations stencil will receive her choice of three (3) ARTplorations stencils (standard size - 5x7) OR a $15 gift certificate to the shop.

That's it from me for today, back again tomorrow with more stencil inspirations.
Have a lovely day and enjoy hopping.


Good Luck!
