ARTplorations Stencils Blog Hop - Day 1


We're having a blog hop!  This week at STAMPlorations it's all about ARTplorations stencils, and we've got loads of inspiration for you.  I've used the Happy Flowers stencil.  I masked off everything apart from the one flower and a bud and applied Gold Pearl Texture Paste on black card.  The sentiment is a black diecut on a white diecut (thanks Maria!)




It wouldn't be a blog hop without prizes:

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 receive a $10 gift certificate. 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 May 31.
Check out what the rest of the team have made here, and get hopping!
