It's all just got a bit retro...........

This week at Crafts4eternity our challenge theme is
My DTmake for this all started by splodging fluorescent acrylic paints on my gelli plate and swooshing paper through it and then they just went in my box of gelli prints. Then I took delivery of a new set of stencils from Splode Away - The Stentastic Street Art Kit and I thought this one, Twiggy,  from the set fitted with the background I had boxed away until inspired to use it.
I have stenciled the Twiggy with Sweet Poppy black paste and added further stencilling with Tims cargo stencil. My "Spots & Stripes" to keep with this weeks theme are also stencilled on using sequin waste and a Wendy Vecchi Stencil for the stripes
I hope that you will pop over and join in with us. You could be the randomly chosen winner and pick 3 downloads from our sponsor this week - Stamping All Day.
I would also like to enter this into the first ever challenge on the new
 Thats Crafty challenges where their first theme is "Anything Goes"
As always thanks for stopping by and feel free to let me know you have visited.
