A big thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge, we'll be back to announce the lucky winner and Top 3 next week!!

Our talented DT girlies have stencilled up a storm to inspire you this week

Anjie - I have used the Spirograph Mask for the background by placing it over some white linen card and putting some Light Modelling Paste through it. I have then coloured over it with a black and pearlescent violet Pan Pastels. I have then used the Postcard Stamp Set to stamp out the postcard and sentiment in black ink. I then stamped the butterflies in Versamark ink and rubbed over them with the pearlescent violet Pan Pastel. Finally I added a black bow and some pearls.

Doreen- I first made a background for my stencils by sponging over my Bright Yellow Green PanPastel onto a Manilla tag.

I have used a few stencils over the top laying them over each other and using different colours of PanPastels . I then stamped the butterflies and  added the dream word and

Yvonne - For this card I've used Grunge Paste, Panpastels and embossing powder.  All info about how I did this over on my blog.

Claire C I've used Maimeri Glassy Gel to and the gorgeous Dutch Doobadoo Chicken Wire stencil to create a resist technique for my card, all the details are on my blog

Terry I had fun working on a canvas. This time I choose the  Purple, Pink and White Acrylic Paints for the background. On top of the first layer I played with the White Coarse Pearlescent PanPastel. I could not resist to play with 2 different stencils from Dutch Doobadoo. First one was the Diamond and the second stencil was the Roses. The roses and diamond came alive with the Light Modelling Paste. When the layers were dry I stamped a heart with the sentiment Love in it on the canvas. The heart was worked on with Glossy Accents and Crackle Accents. Last but not least I placed a butterfly to finish my project.

The products I have worked with are:

Lou: I have used quite a soft colour palate this week using white gesso, a Dutch Doobadoo stencil and my pan pastels. The centre stampbord panel has also been embossed and coloured with pan pastels. Full details and more photos can be found on my blog.
