Stencils & Masks

Hello Frilly and Funkie friends. It's our second week of the Stencils & Masks challenge. This week, our Funkie designers are sharing their spin on it. Please visit their individual blogs to read all about how they have created their projects.

Stencils and masks are readily available whether store-bought or home-made. You probably have more of them on hand than you realize! This challenge is open through Tuesday, May 29, so pull out your stash and make something, link it up to share with us... and put your name in the hat to win a prize. The Design Team's pick will get the Funkie Favorite badge and there will be one random winner receiving a $15 gift certificate to shop in the Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Without further ado, here are the Funkie Design Team's altered projects:

Marjie Kemper - She Who Stamps and Scraps

Anita Houston - The Artful Maven Haven

Linda Coughlin - The Funkie Junkie

Week One Post:

Hello, Frilly and Funkie Fans.  We are thrilled with all the altered art you shared with us for the last challenge and will announce the winners on Monday.  Now for the new challenge:  this week we'd like to see you use stencils and/or masks in your artwork.  

Use a purchased stencil or mask, or create your own. It's easy to do using positive/negative space from die-cuts, stamps, punches or your own hand drawn doodles and drawings. The possibilities of what you use with your stencil or masks are pretty extensive.  Many of us are inky crafters.  Some are fond of paints, ink sprays, gesso, chalk... even plain old water does some pretty amazing things through a stencil.  We can't wait to see your creations!

We'll have two winners ~ one random choice winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to spend at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, and the design team will pick a favorite who'll receive our winner's badge for display on your blog.

Remember, our challenges run for two weeks.  This week the Frilly side of the team has the spotlight, with the Funkie gals to join in next Wednesday.  You can enter in either style at any time, regardless of which side of the design team is being showcased.  Please visit the DT blogs for details on how they've created their pieces.

Without further ado, here are the Frilly team samples:

Sue Carrington  - Stamping Sue Style

Tammy Roberts - Paperie Sweetness

Teresa Kline - Paperie Blooms
Whatever your style, Frilly or Funkie, you are welcome to play along with our vintage inspired challenge.  You may upload your project at any time. If using a public forum, please use keyword F&F.  Please be sure to provide a link back to our challenge in your post.  

Please do not submit work that does not contain a stencil or mask, and please please please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our design team can leave comments on your blogs.
