Good Morning Everyone,

At As You Like It this week the challenge is all about stencils.  We would like to see a project made using your favourite stencil.

I don't use stencils much, but for my DT card I have used a Studio Katia Duo Stencil which I purchased from a FB group a while ago.  I thought it would it would be very adaptable for cards for anyone, depending on the colours used.  

I had a play with some distress oxides but didn't really like how solid they appeared, so I tried the distress inks I had and it seemed easier to shade with them.  I just had a play around with the colours I had, but am pretty happy with how it turned out.  I heat embossed Happy in gold, which was quite a brave move for me, but it turned out ok and then added the large birthday die, which I think is from Mama Elephant.

I drew a few strings in and added the final touches of sequins and enamel dots.

The sponsor this week is:
