Morning Everyone,

Back again for the start of a new challenge at As You Like It  where we are asking to see your favourite of either stencils or freestyle backgrounds.

Whenever I try to make an inky background I am not always happy with the end result so I hardly ever make them and have gone with a stencil for this challenge.  

I have used the Flower Frenzy mini from Crafter's Workshop for my card and used paste through it first and then when it was dry I put the stencil back and inked up with green and yellow inks.  I do like the look of paste through stencils as it adds a bit more dimension.  I've added a few enamel dots and gems for a bit of interest.  

I couldn't decide which green mat went best with the colours so layered up with both.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

I would like to enter:

Classic Design challenge - Anything Goes
Stencil Fun challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Knockouts - Birthday Wishes
Simon Says Weds - Anything Goes

Thank you for taking the time to visit and have a good day.
