A New Stencil at Your Service

I have a new stencil! YAY! Let's play...
 A good beginning:
 Breaking in that shiny new one with some white acrylic paint:
And now, the angels of heaven may have just joined in a chorus when I lifted up my stencil to reveal this bit of beauty! GORGEOUS!!!
 Pink Mist? Sure!
Now, that either looks really pretty, or it looks like someone was injured. I'm going to go with pretty...
 Moving on... now for some contrast:
 That's a bit more harsh than I intended. But, I will make it work! Forging onward...
 Some white Mister Huey will help blend and tone all that down perhaps?
 Yes. And maybe some dripping too:
Yes. I like that! And, after some boring drying time...

Now, we get to scrap! How about some tags for this fun little Instagram photo?
 Adding in a few more...
 A look see into the scrap bin:
 And now let the layering begin!
 A bit more...
 Some on the side for balance...
 Scattering around the gray stripe:
 I think some twine looks better tied in there than the little strings they come with...
 Title time!
Hmmmm.... I was out of more letters on that sheet than I thought. Oh well, I made it work with the negatives:
 And after the usual pen work and such...
Ta Da!
A new stencil... at your service!
