This week, the Diva has a guest challenger, Charlotte Carpentier. She challenged us to use a stencil, but unfortunately I did not read quite clearly enough. I did use a stencil, but didn't really use it as a string. I used it as the template. It a stencil I have been working on to use in an upcoming class for a fall card. I created the stencil from leaves from my yard. Here is the actual stencil. You can see that I have used it a couple of times - it is almost getting its own character.
I then used pan pastels to create my image, and tangled within the image.
But I didn't stop there. I shaded using pastel chalk pencils in the fall colors. And then did another chalk overlay with a different stencil.
