Evening folks.
Got my Grandson and Daughter over tonight, Nich isn't too well and has been off work for a week. Think she needed a change of scenery and someone to do the early shift as SiL is out with friends tonight. He dropped her and Ben off before going to his mates.
That means that craft time has been restricted, but I have managed to finish my DT card this morning and put my brain to a couple of other challenges this evening. 
Less is More are asking for a Turquoise inspired creation this week. 

A new challenge Virginia's View is asking for stenciling, as is Keep it Simple, so that's the inspiration for this CAS card.

I used a Dreamweaver stencil I saw and fell in love with then didn't know what to do with and some stencil embossing paste. I mixed some Peacock Feathers DI ink with the white paste and used plain white card for the background. I tried once and the paste leaked through but the second time it worked. The sentiment I shadow stamped in Peacock Feathers to lessen the intensity of the colour.

I shall enter the following challenges:-
Less is More - Turquoise
Keep it simple - Stencil
Virginia's View - Stenciling

Don't forget that there is still another week well until Friday at 6pm BST in which to enter the Fantasy Stampers Silhouette Challenge, go on have a go.

Thanks for visiting and reading til the end!
