We've had some nice dry days recently so the work has continued in the garden and the craft desk has been sat at infrequently.
I have quite a lot of stencils - I have decided I have to start using them more - I buy them, look at them and then they just get filed away!
I have a couple of brick wall stencils but this one is a large one from Clarity.
I started by inking my background in shades of Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet and Seedless Preserve.
Once dry I simply randomly applied the gesso through the stencil.
A bit of random stamping along the bottom and one of my fave sentiments using Memento Sweet Plum
Sharing over at TIOT whose challenge this time is Use a Stencil, and over at Colourful Options the challenge is Pretty in Pink.
Hope all is OK in your part of blogland and will get round to catching up with you all soon! x
