Just for me!

My new templates arrived yesterday but I was too lazy - and too busy catching up on WOYWW posts - to use them!

I got 4 (as you do) here they are - think those fish will be fun!  I may have to take up journalling....












and after the Liverpool game tonight (don't ask, not a good day!) I used one on a tag (for a change..)
I was just messing about, really but once I'd done the background with the template I thought I may as well finish it - well, I may do some more to it still, but I'm tired and going to bed.

The butterflies are from Tim's Papillon set and stamped in dusty concord, over the numbers which are rusty hinge, edged with walnut stain. I added some glossy accents to a couple of the butterflies; but the flash doesn't help show it to its best.

I love these stencils, just ordered the number one myself but the diamond one was out of stock. Great tag and the more I see the butterflies the more I like. Tracy x

Love how you have used the masking with the numbers and I am waiting for my Papillon set to arrive. Looking at yours I can't wait, I want to play now.
Great tag Helen.
