I really dont know how to work with stencils.. but now I know how to play with them.. I made a few stencils for myself..

I took a thick paper and I have drawn grass like thing with the pencil.. The little butterfly stencil is from my stash and the big butterfly and the flower stencils are punched out from butterfly and flower craft punches respectively.. I started this work at 3:00 pm and finished at 6:45pm.. Really a mess.. I messed up my hands, dress and my work area cos this is my first stencil work..
Here is my work...

I made this photo frame (3D ???).. I used rainbow decorative tape on the outside of the frame.. The paint which I used for the grass, flowers and butterflies is from Hobby Ideas acrylic paint.. 

I felt that something was missing in this.. what I did was I took pink, green, blue and yellow color pens and just gave the shade to the flowers, grass and butterflies.. Then I added buttons, glitter and bling.. :) and the sentiment is hand written.. 

Im entering this into

...Thank You...
