ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop Day 2

Happy Thursday everyone.  Today is the second day of our ARTplorations stencil hop!  Yay!  We STAMP girls have created some amazing projects using the fabulous stencils Shery designs.

The hop runs from the 14th until the 20th. Everyday you will get to see some lovely projects.  Today my card features another new stencil that I just love.  Check it out...

I took my stencil (Circular 2) and sponged on Hero Arts ombre ink Butter to Orange  I stamped the sentiment on a narrow white strip of cardstock and adhered it to my card with foam dots.  I stamped and die cut my elephant (Tweet Love set and Coordinating Dies) and then coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I attached it to my card with some foam dots as well.  That elephant is so cute and I just adore the background! 

I do hope you'll join us and pop on over to the blog to see everyone's lovely work.  As usual there's prizes to be won!  All the details are at the main blog.

Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!
