Mixed media, stencil and stamp ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well and Happy Hump day to all of you!  I have been playing with loads of snippets, card and paper, stencils, paint and felt tip pens again.  Because my fibromyalgia is flaring quite badly right now I have simple and non fussy MM card to share with you.  It was fun to play with the stencil and paints to improve my skills with that and the bonus was that I used two snippets from the never ending snippet pile.  Here it is …


A 148mm square card and okay to post
