SDC93: Stencils

It's time for the Stampotique Designer's Challenge and the lovely Jane is our hostess this week!  Here's what she says about her theme choice,
Hello! Jane here today and happy to be hosting this weeks' challenge at the Stampotique DT challenge blog!  I have an incredible love for stencils like a lot of creative bloggers do these days!  I also think the images from Stampotique look awesome stamped over a stenciled back ground.  So, for this weeks' challenge I am asking you to pull out one of your favorite stencils and use it on your creation with a Stampotique image.
Like Jane, I do love stencils, but for some reason, I tend not to reach for them as often as I could.  I've been on a bit of a 'clean and simple' kick lately so I opted for a very simple rectangular stencil.  I have stamped over the stencil with a solid stamp.  To achieve this look, I inked up the solid stamp with my Desert Heat Kaleidacolor ink pad and spritzed with a fine mist of water to help blend the colors for a subtle watery effect. I just love the bold effect of Jo's gorgeous new dandelion duo with this layout!
