ARTplorations Stencils Blog Hop Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of the ARTplorations blog hop!  Today I've used the Confetti Circles stencil.  I was applying Distress Inks through the stencil to make another card (which you'll be seeing soon), and decided I couldn't waste all that ink left on the stencil, so I spritzed it then laid it onto a new card to get this print.  And it just so happened that I had this cake image already stamped, coloured and cut out in co-ordinating colours - yay!



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 the rest of the inspiration here, and get hopping!
