Collaged Butterfly

Meet today's card.
I am loving this new Drippy Butterfly stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.  
This one comes with a stencil and a mask and I used both for my card.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by cutting a piece of white cardstock 3 3/4" x 5" for my card front.  I laid the Drippy Butterfly stencil over the paper, and inked it up with some  Broken China Distress Oxide inks.  
  • I removed the stencil and placed the mask over the butterfly and lightly inked around the outside edges of my card with some Peacock Feathers DOX ink.
  • Next, leaving the mask in place, I randomly stamped the Friends Script and the Texture around the outer edges with some Blueprint Sketch DOX ink.
  • I place the panel into my Misti and stamped the sentiment with some black ink.
  • I added some white splatters using my white Posca pen.
  • Lastly, I glued it onto a heavy white card base and added 3 black gems under the sentiment.

Here is the stencil I used:

Beautiful card, Karen - you've made me think of my wonderful friend Sharron who loved butterflies even more than I - imagine that? She left those footprints for sure.
