Love Some Stencils!

Hello Everybody!

There is a new challenge at Scrap It Girl!  On your project use either or both-stencils or masks.

I chose to use a stencil for this card:

I recently went to the craft store in search of some holiday inspired stencils-but I am either too early or just at the wrong place.  But I had a treasure hidden in my stash...

The bats and the stars are from this orange stencil.  One that I bought many moons ago for like .09.  Nine cents-that's right.  I have some other super cheap stencils like that too.  Now usually I have Tim Holtz or Heidi Swapp.  But for this project I need just a regular stencil (not fancy.) ;)

For the bats I used this awesome graphite paste by Viva.  It is so cool!  It glides on really nicely.

Here you can see the shiny in the bats.  So cool-shiny and it's a raised effect.  

I used Inka Gold for the stars.  It's opaque-which is really awesome.  I used a make up sponge to apply it.  I can't wait to put it on some other projects.  I bought this at Joann's.  They have some other varieties of the graphite paste but not graphite specifically.  I bought that at an art store.

I took an angled picture to show the haunted house pop dotted.  The haunted house came from my Cricut-Create a Critter 2.  I love this cartridge.  It has so many images besides cute smiling animals.  LOL!  And it came in handy because I could size how big I needed the house.  I used yellow Stickles for the yellow areas.  The background, grass, and moon paper is from DCWV.  

I would like to link this card up to the Anything Goes Challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you link up with our Stencils and Masks challenge.  There's a chance for a cool prize! :)

Until next time my friends...have a great day! :)
