Good evening...and welcome to our new follower...I am so chuffed when we get another lovely follower...I do hope you enjoy this crafty journey....

I am late on parade has just been one of those I am 10pm and still crafting....both Tess and Eric have gone to bed...and Tess is snoring away... Karl is away with work sh sh don't tell him I am working late...please..

Anyway back to toady one thing that I did manage to do was to make my entry to this weeks Less Is More Challenge...

It is theme week.....and the theme is ....Stencilling....

Oh now you know I do love my Clarity Stencils...

So here is what I came up with....

I started with a piece of Gelli card and one of the new shape aperture stencils.

I do like to use more than one stencil at a on with the Trellis Stencil.

Next I used three colours of Distress ink and blended them using the mini blending tool...

When the trellis was removed this is what I had..

And when the aperture was removed....I do love to see the reveal..

Now in my head , ( not always the best place to be!!!) this just needed something jumping over it...

So out with the Clarity Hare stamp and black Archival ink...

And a word from the word chains..

We all have dreams, don't we ?

Some doodling with a black fine liner and job done..

I do hope that you approve...

Remember to check out the Less Is More blog...

Thanks for popping in this evening....

I hope you sleep well...and have a good day tomorrow.
