Anything goes at Stamps and Stencils!

Hello there! Time for a new challenge at stamps and stencils today - and the theme is Anything Goes! As long as it includes stamps or stencils of course. Here's what Sue had to say ...
 It's been a while - Being creative often leads you in different directions and sometimes it isn't until you start that you know where you are heading. For this challenge I thought that as we've not done it for a while it would be good to let your creative spirit wander and have a theme of Anything Goes. Your project must be mixed media and include stamping and/or stencilling but apart from that it's up to you !

So here's how my spirit wandered ... it made a new ATC case ... I seem to need these at regular intervals!!!

I started by stencilling using two aalland create stencils using gesso ... one dry I added a coat of 

mint green paint and then some stamping ...

Next I got playing with some paperartsy stamps.... this is the back.

And this is the front!

Its nearly full already! I will need to get myself another!

Hope you can join us! You can find amazing inspiration and link up here.

Big hugs
