Hi All!

It was about 15 years ago to see the Dreamweaver stencils at local rubber stamp show.
As a stamper, stencil is kind a close tool, of course I purchased a few at the show for trial.  That time, demo was coloring with pastel, rather simple, yet so beautiful.
Since those days, tools and materials have been added to stencil world, and each one of them make the project more fun.

This time, I use Imagine Crafts' Creative Medium as texture paste, in addition to NEON inks.
