Stencil Inspiration and Last Month's Winner!

We have some inspiration for this month's Stencil Challenge and a winner for last month's Watercolor Challenge.  Congrats to Phaedra Fuller.  She was our random winner chosen this month for the $10 gift certificate.

We loved seeing all of the fun and creative projects that everyone posted.  We loved it so much, we've decided to give a paper pack to each person who participated in the watercolor challenge.  Thanks so much.  We can't wait to see what you do with stencils this month!

Below are the names of those who participated.  Please stop by and pick up your package of patterned paper.  We tried our best to make sure we included everyone's name.  However, if you participated, and you don't see your name, please give us a call.  We don't want to miss anyone.

Winners of paper packs:
Joy Bland
Sandy Taylor
Janie Adams Strand
Megan Bekkevar
MaryLynn Weller
Vicki Schweikert

Now for some stencil inspiration.  I used a stencil, some versa mark ink, and white embossing powder on the front of this card.  After embossing, I colored sections with the Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  Then, washed the color with my water brush to create a fun watercolor look.  The embossed areas resist the ink.  I had so much fun with the watercolor challenge, I still have some techniques I've got to try.  So, this is a combination, watercolors and stencils!
