Stencilling fun!!!!

Hello!  I have surrounded myself with masks/stencils for you this week!!!!!  Tando stencils/masks are incredible in their durability!  They can take anything you throw at them and come up trumps without splitting or tearing.  Sturdy enough for texture paste but also fine enough for stamping through.  You can find them *here*.  We also have ranges designed by *Andy Skinner**Neil Walker*, *Giovanna Zara* and our own lovely *Kaz*, so lots to choose from! 
 
For my project this week I have made a 'masterboard', just an A4 piece of card decorated with stencils (3) & spray inks to be used as backgrounds.  It always amazes me just how far a spray can go....ITS EVERYWHERE!!!!! hahaha!  I used Gio's LARGE DOILIE, Andy's SUNBURST and RANDOM CIRCLES.
 
 
Firstly I decorated a chunky page from my Tando Folder (you can see it decorated *here*).  I added some more stencilling using Gio's PROFILE mask, drawing around the face and painting it in with acrylics.  I smudged some 3B pencil around it to soften it.  The Tando Hearts have been covered & added too.  The background has had another stencil, sprayed through with white to soften it.
 
 
Then I added a stamped image to make a card.  Adding *TEXTURE CRACKLE PASTE* through a *HEART* stencil...
 
 
Next came an ATC.  Another Tando HEART was covered in the patterned card and added...
 
 
There is still some pieces left too!  Not sure what I am going to use them for yet. But this is a great way (and simple) to make your own backgrounds. 

I used:
