Hi there everyone. I had been away from home for 11 days and when I got back, I had an early birthday package waiting for me from my gorgeous friend, Loll Thompson. Loll said I could open up my parcel even though my birthday isn't for a couple of weeks.
Loll spoilt me rotten. Heaps of stencils that she had made me, butterflies galore and boxes of sequins. Thank you so much Loll!
The weather is quite dreary here at the moment with lots of wind and rain. There's no better place than your craft room on days like this so off I went to play with my goodies from Loll.
Here is a card I made using a butterfly stencil.
I had a piece of watercolour card that I had already used my brushos with. It had gorgeous orange and pink colours.
I placed my stencil on the panel and used Spiced Marmalade distress ink with a sponge to lay down the colour. Using a sponge again, I inked Vintage Photo around the edges of the butterfly but used a flicking motion to create some texture. I ended up doing that around the whole panel.
I also used a Tim Holtz stencil at the bottom and top of the butterfly in orange and pink inks. Lastly, I used a white pen to randomly add dots.
The sentiment is from PTI.
Mixed Media is way out of my comfort zone but I was quite happy with how it turned out.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenge
Thanks so much for looking xx
