    The "Build a Bouquet Stencil Challenge"

    I made a set of stencils the other day and have had a blast playing with them. I thought that maybe other people here would have a fine time as well.
    There were too many images to upload here, so I've put them up over at Deviant Art: http://foxytocin.deviantart.com/art/...tock-123349804 Click on the download link there and you should be able to dump the unzipped file straight into your Stencils folder on your computer.

    These are simple and quick to use...I look foward to seeing what such a creative batch of people can make with them!
    Florally yours,
    Foxytocin/Leah

    Here are my first two contributions to the challenge.........with the teapot, I was going for a folk art flair...with the little vase, I was just having aimless fun.

    Fun challenge, Foxytocin -- I really like your vase. It has the feeling of being done very quickly, but it has a lot of verve!

    Here's my take... again, can't resist mixing styles.

    Okay, Foxy...here's my challenge...of sorts! It's not exactly a bouquet but is done with your wonderful stencils (and some manual stuff done by me!)

    This is pretty nostalgic for me since I loved doing this with crayons when I was young (so very long ago....!!!). I just loved scratching away the black crayon to see the delightful colors come through! I had just as much fun and delight doing it in ArtRage!!!

    Thanks, Foxy....nice challenge and it was very therapeutic for me!!!

    It took me a moment to recognize that "to Foxy" meant to me. Hah!
    Yachris, your's is both elegant and delightful. Een, I never would have thought to go for a scratchboard look. Clever....
    I put some flowers in a shoe today...
    And thanks for the kind words, everyone. I thought this would be something simple and fun and it cheers me to see other people have a good time.

    Foxy, I absolutely love the shoe!!! Reminds me of the story about the Old Woman and the Shoe! Whoa...taking myself back a long ways...!

    This was fun for me and I am glad you like my "scratch" art effect using your stencils. This was very enjoyable and I look forward to the next challenge by you!!!

    Of Flowers and Things

    Hi foxy! I finally did it. I combined your stencils and MisterPaint's -- creating a colorful background with your flowers and hearts -- and using your vase and MisterPaint's stencils for the main image. Your stencils are so much fun! I made the background a bit transluscent to work with the vase, bouquet, and all. But the background was even more cheerful and colorful by itself before I lightened it for the effect I wanted for this piece. I think I created it almost entirely from your stencils. You have so many I want to really play with them and do another. Thanks again, foxy. You are so sweet to share! Blessings, Cathy
