Challenge #115: Salutations and Greetings TWIST stencils in background plus August Winners!

 Hello Peeps....

Welcome to Week 2 of Challenge #115

Salutations and Greetings 

with a 

TWIST of stencils in background

This month it is a bit open to interpretation and will suit all mediums. You can either make your greeting the centre of your piece or perhaps refer to different greetings in different languages perhaps, or create a piece that is all greetings, or just greet someone,  or.......or......or do whatever comes to mind to suit the theme - just remember, no stamps please. 

The TWIST of a stencilled background is to get you using those stencils laying around in some form or other - or you can make your own stencil and use that to create a background. The background can be in chalk, paint, ink, whatever (might draw the line at blood and other bodily fluids)  but we must see the stencilling clearly to make sure it is not a stamp. Some stencils and stamps look so alike. 

A 3D object made from card that has been stencilled or a scrapbook page or a journal piece....or a card! Whatever direction your creative juices can take you with this is fine. 

Talking of Greetings, Weasley say's Hello!

Well, perhaps he was saying "Don't take a photo of me or I will bite you!"
Anyway, he is a big handsome boy.
