    What vivid backgrounds you created! I love that you not only used the stencils with the regular rainbow stripes, but added two other rainbow effects! The black sentiments look so sharp against the bright backgrounds, too!

    My first attempt with a stencil which I bought for 50 cents at a scrapbook garage sale…and saw your link on another challenge. Great inspiration from DT and I will be back for this challenge and others.

    I love these backgrounds. I have a few stencils in my stash, but for some reason I don’t reach for them often. That’s about to change — gotta try these techniques. Thanks for the inspiration.
