ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop - Day 5

It's the final day of the ARTplorations Stencil Blog hop at STAMPlorations - but it's not the end.  We've still got the Flash Stencil Project Linky Party open until tomorrow, and you've still got time to comment on all the stops on the hop.

Here's my card for today.  I've been neglecting CityGirl, so I thought I'd give her an outing today.  I have used a stencil, honest!  See the green triangular pattern?  That's the Tribal Triangles stencil.  I started off by brayering lemon, lime and orange acrylic paints onto my panel, added green through the stencil, did some partial background stamping, stamped CityGirl and the sentiment, then drew a partial border before mounting onto card.

So here's how to play along.  Comment on this and every other stop on the hop each day, and enter the flash linky party (details below) for maximum chances to win.  You can see all today's stops here on the STAMPlorations blog.

  • FIVE (5) winners will receive their choice of ARTplorations stencil (standard size - 5x7). Winners will be randomly drawn from all comments left on the designers' blogs.
  • ONE (1) winner will receive a $15 gift certificate OR her choice of 2 ARTplorations stencils (standard size - 5x7). 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 December 13: 
  • TWO (2) winners whose projects feature stencils (any brand) will each receive their choice of one (1) ARTplorations stencil (standard size - 5x7)
  • ONE (1) winner whose project features an ARTplorations stencil will receive her choice of three (3) ARTplorations stencils (standard size - 5x7) OR a $15 gift certificate to the shop.
Thanks for hopping along!
