Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge 71: let's stencil

This is my design team card for Cheerful stamp pad challenge 71: let's stencil. Please click on the link and see what the other members of the design team have created and also, hopefully, join in with your own projects that have been produced using a stencil.

Vicki at Cheerful stamp pad said: 'This challenge is a little different from what I usually post. It is "Use a Stencil". The DT does not care how the stencil was used. It can be on a art journal page, a canvass, a card or even an ATC. You are not limited is to how you use your stencil as long as we can tell that a stencil was used.'

I used stencils with a gelli plate. First I made a print of yellow dabbing a scrunched up piece of paper on to the acrylic paint to give a mottled effect. I then used a lovely leafy stencil from Clarity Stamps to overlay and lightly stamped some trees in the background using an Inkadinkado stamp with memento rich cocoa. I randomly used Sheena Douglass stamps inked stazon black.
