It's a 'Stencilathon' at STAMPlorations

It's all about 'STENCILS' over at STAMPlorations
with great prizes and discounts on their stencils.
Better go over Here and check what the blog hop is all about!

I just love playing around with different techniques
using stencils as there are so many fabulous ones to choose from
 especially Here
I recently received some great stencils/stamps to play with
and had to try them out.
I will also pop this over to the CAS for the December Challenge
 Check it out Here
and Here

I had no idea where I was going with my card but knew
I wanted to use the bright colours from Colour Throwdown
You can find all the details Here
I started adding ink to my
2 ARTplorations stencils
Retro Circle & Square Dance
with the colours above using
Tim Holtz - Festive Berries
SU - Melon Mambo
and Versacolor - Lime
This cs was cut with a stitched die.
I then inked up my new STAMPlorations stamps -
Scribbly Splatter Grunge (love it)
and Bloom Happy for the Sentiment
cut out from the matching die and popped.
Added a few circles from the rubber end of a pencil
with the 3 colours from above.
A little bit of spritzing finished my card off nicely.
Thanks so much for dropping in.
I really love reading your comments.
