Week 272 - Masking and/or stenciling

Morning all,
time for a new challenge here at Allsorts and I'm here to guide you through it. I in this case being Helene :).
We have a new sponsor and it's very exciting to present the prize this week:

Ace Envelopes is one of UK’s leading suppliers of envelopes, over 25 million envelopes in different sizes, colours and shapes available for next day delivery services to meet your needs

The challenge for you this week is to use a mask or a stencil when you create your project. I know there are loads of pretty, pretty paper out there but sometimes it's fun to create your own by using a mask or a stencil and some sort of paint. I hope you feel the same way and will be able to join us this week. The DT created wonderful projects for this challenge, but then again they usually do :).
