Hello friends. The challenge over at Merry Monday this week is to use a stencil on your Christmas card. I had bought a Tim Holtz stencil just before Christmas, but hadn't used it yet and figured this would be a great time to use it. This stencil (Festive - THS029) is a bit small in places and it took me three tries before I thought it was "ok", but as a whole, I think it turned out pretty well. Take a look:
I used Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede, and Cherry Cobbler inks and sponge daubers to color in on the stencil, and then embossed in gold my "joy" (Hand Lettered Holiday - WPlus9). I mounted this layer to a piece of kraft cardstock and then layered that onto a card base of Old Olive. A little bit of twine finished it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
