ARTplorations... Blog HOP- day 1

Hi there, todays card is all about STENCILS...
 
ARTplorations Stencils to be exact.....
 and we have a organised a little blog hop for you to enjoy for the next 3 DAYS..
 Day 1
This gorgeous stencil is from  STAMPlorations...new Stencil range. The stencil I used today is...
ARTPlorations... SHUTTERS
I used Pumice Stone Distress Inks to sponge thru the stencil and then added a Tim Holtz Thinlets Die.
I cut out a Banner on Patterned paper and then Stamped the sentiment from STAMPlorations - Holiday Artsy.

So pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team, but before you go, leave a comment for a chance to win:

SIX (6) winners (2 winners per day) will receive their choice of ARTplorations stencil. Winners will be randomly drawn from all comments left on the designers' blogs.

THREE (3) winners will each win a $15 gift certificate. Winners will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog.

And there may well be some surprise prizes!
