I wanted to play along with the current challenge at CAS Stencil Challenge where the technique is to layer our stencils over a coloured background.  This is what I have made:

I masked off a panel on the card front and inked it with Fossilised Amber before placing one of my new stencils - Batik - over the top and inking through it with Rusty Hinge and Ground Espresso.  I die cut a giraffe from Sizzix from dark brown card and stamped some safari themed words.

I shall also link up at Inkspirational where the word prompt is Adventure and at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge.

The stencil is available to buy in my store -

Thanks for stopping by!
