December Stencil Hop Day 4

Hi All, welcome to Day 4 of the ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop where we're celebrating all things stencil.

Here is my project ...

Today I worked with the Holly Backgrounds ARTplorations Stencil. As you can see I used my green and red Starlights Metallic Paints again to sponge the leaves and berries on a piece of linen textured card which I lightly edged with my gold leaf pen before layering on my red base card. To finish I simply added a shadow layered red/gold die-cut sentiment.

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 ...



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)
